  • That is a way of crawling for some babies. It is sometimes referred to as the army crawl.

  • Kaylee did the "Army Crawl" for about 2-3 weeks, and then she started with the getting up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth, and then she turned into a crawling pro.

    Watch out, it is the beginning of the end.

  • Yes and no. Lots of babies scoot on their bellies and then crawl and some of those just walk after that. Each little on is individual in that area, it's just important that he can get around! Good luck!
