How do you tell when your baby is about to crawl? Can somebody please give me feed back because my daughter is 5 months and she is beginning to scoot around with her upper body ,it seems like she needs to learn more coordination since she will fall but I want to kind of get an idea of if its coming soon How long would you say I have left .I know I should be patient but Im a first time mom and Im just so excited I can't help but try to get some info on crawling. :-D thanks

All of my kids had about a month between starting the 'army crawl' and doing hands and knees crawling, but some kids actually never do the hands and knees type. The type of crawl (or scoot or roll) does not matter near as much as whether or not she figures out how to get herself around. I've known kids who the only 'crawl' they ever had was sitting on their butt and moving themselves around with one hand. ;)
