My 8 month old is not crawling yet is there anything i can do to help her?

Be patient and don't rush her. My daughter didn't start crawling till she was 10 and a half months, and walking at 13 months. She will get there when she is ready.

I wouldn't stress. She'll crawl when she's ready. But putting toys just out of her reach might encourage her.

My lil boy didnt start crawling till he was 10 months and walking a week before he tuned 14 months. All babies are different:) Good Luck

Some babies don't ever just make sure you are giving her plenty of playtime on the floor and if she's going to crawl, she will, when she's ready. I have three kids... my two oldest never crawled just went from sitting to pulling up on furniture and cruising. My third, now over 10 months, is not crawling either. No worries though, they all do it in their own time! Enjoy the little time you have left before having to chase her all over the place, LOL!

Let me ask you a few question.. How often do you put her on the floor for tummy time? Does she kick her leggs when she is on her tummy? . Now if she does kick when she is on her tubby, put your hands on the end of her feet and let her kick off of them and she will get the idea she can move. Before you know it she will be crawling like crazy. Not tryimg to sound like I KNOW it all, but I do have 9 kids but had 6 of them 9 and one on the way. If you have any other questions and like my input, you may send me an message here.

It took my 18 mo to figure it out to she would lay on her stomach and flail like she was drowning on the floor... My mom bought her this really cool toy and when you push the buttons it rolls away and sing. She still plays with it!! They have it at WalMart for 15 bucks. I hope it helps!
