My son started crawling at 9 moths one week, and my friends daughter is almost 13months and has never crawled, she scoots on her bum and is now nearly walking... Some babies never crawl, just go on to walk instead... xx

The normal range for crawling is 6-10 months. He still has plenty of time.

as a mom of 3 kids past this and a former nanny I can tell you with full confidence that it is perfectly normal-some kids skip crawling all together!!many times they are just focousing on another skill.

She's probably okay. My daughter didn't crawl either until about 9 months and even then she did an army crawl on her belly. She didn't walk until 15 months. Ages on milestones are just averages. That means some babies will be ahead and others will be behind. Its no big deal. They all progress at their own rates.



My doc said that because babies sleep on their backs these days, they roll, push up on hands and crawl later than they used to. Give her plenty of tummy time. Place her favorite toy in front of her and let her work her way towards it.

My son didn't start crawling till almost 10 months. He would roll everywhere. Then one day he just got up on his hands and knees and crawled like he knew how to do it all along. And some babies never crawl, they just go straight to walking. So as long as she's getting around somehow (scooting, rolling, etc) I wouldn't worry about it.

I REALLY DONT THINK THERE IS ANY REASON TO WORRY UNLESS YOU STRONGLY FEEL THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG. MY DAUGHTER TOOK A WHILE TO CRAWL AND LEARNED TO WALK ALOT FASTER!!! EVERY BABY HAS THEIR OWN PACE AND IM SURE YOUR ANGEL WILL BE CRAWLING AROUND IN NO TIME!!! IF IT HELPS HAVE YOUR BABY AROUND OTHER CHILDREN WHO CRAWL AND SOMETIMES IT HELPS FOR BABIES TO SEE OTHERS CRAWL TO GET THAT WANT TO DO IT TOO:) HAVE A WONDERFUL NIGHT AND GODBLESS U AND YOUR BABY
