crawling question

My 1 year old doesn't "crawl" traditionally. Let me see if I can describe it. . . He puts one leg out to the side and one leg tucked under and pushes off with his foot while he scoots the other one along. Does that make any sense? Do you think I should be concerned about this? He seems to use both legs just fine while cruising.

  • That's how my son always crawled. He started around 6 months and was walking by 10 months. As long as they are getting around it doesn't matter.
