As Brianna said, 9 months is the average. And average means that there's a normal range before and after that, so don't take that as the upper limit, either. I wouldn't worry unless the baby isn't crawling by a year. Call your pediatrician if you're still concerned, though.

Lots of tummy time. If in a month or so baby still doesn't seem intrested in crawling take baby to the doctor and see if they suggest early intervention programs.

Does she get enough play time on the floor? My daughter started crawling when she was 6 months mostly because we hung out on the floor and played with her.

My baby is also 7 months and doesn't seem keen to start crawling. I've resolved to stopped worrying too much as long as baby is generally healthy, at some point in time she will start crawling.

Sometimes I feel there is so much emphasis on these development milestones because many people link them to intelligence: debatable? Who cares.

My baby boy didn't start crawling until 9 months. You have nothing to worry about

HI, I would keep baby on tummy and just keep toys near baby on blanket . Your baby will crawl when ready they have to get the courage to do it and every baby is different.

Make sure you do lots of tummy time, put bright interesting toys or even his favorite snack in front of him. Either he will start crawling or get up and start running! Good luck!

Some babies just get up and walk. Does bub commando crawl?. Don't worry too much if you put bub in front of something they want they will find a way!
