If they were preemies, like mine, this is very common, if not, its still okay, all children develop at different times. Dont get too concerned just yet

my twins are 9 months, my son does this kind of army crawl. he uses his arms mostly. and my daughter just caught on to it about 3 weeks ago. i wouldnt worry too much just yet. every child is different. physically my son is ahead oh his sister. but she seems to move at her own pace. maybe that is what your abies are doing. Have they reached other milestones yet? do they sit on their own or supported? also another thing to suggest is buy a walker or two. as soon as we put our twins in them, they took off. now my son stands and pulls himself up. just today he crawled over a basket and out of his crib!! good luck!

I would say if they are reaching other milestones on time I wouldn't worry too much. Also, if they were born premature then they are likely to hit their milestones a few months later than others do. If you feel they are falling far behind in other things too I would certainly bring this up at the next doctor's visit. It never hurts to ask! ; )

Mine started at about 10 months. One may have been closer to 11 months. Both walked at 15 months. It's all in the normal range.

Honestly, there is a big range of normal so I wouldn't worry too much. Are they at least creeping or trying to crawl? If they are trying or working on it, don't worry. Also keep in mind that there are a lot of things that are considered "crawling" -- military crawl, etc. They don't have to be up on their knees for it to count as a crawl!

yeah, my twins did things late-ish too. crawled around a year and walked around 16 mos. just too busy playing with each other to want to explore the house yet. :) but when they did. wow. busy gals.

I think so!! Mine didn't till they were 11 months. So I began to think that ment they were going to be late walkers. NOPE!!! LOL They walked right at their first birthday!!

Twins as a rule they are later at doing things than singletons.

Hope this helped!!
