9 Month old son wont crawl?

Hi Mommy's.... My 9month old son is not showing any signs that he wants to crawl? I encourage him with tummy time and put him on his play mat in a sitting position - he will only rock back & forth. Must I just let he take his own course or must I encourage him in some way - and how? Is this normal or am I just a stressed 1st time mommy with normal feelings and concerns?

It's totally normal. Some babies never crawl. They just up and walk. Some only crawl for a week or two before walking. Honestly, you shouldn't be concerned. 9 months is still quite young for crawling. Yes, some babies are walking at this age, some are crawling, but every baby is different. He will crawl or walk in his own time. Just keep up the tummy time.
