  • My DD got in the crawling position about 8 1/2 months and started actually crawling at 9 months. She never did the rocking back and forth. I waited for it, but she would never do it.

  • My son didn't start crawling until 11 months. He started getting on his hands and knees a little probably around 9 or 10 months, but he never really rocked, though it is common for them to do that. He mostly got on his hands and knees to get into a sitting position, and then he'd kind-of throw himself at the couch or something and pull himself up to standing. Then he figured out he could actually get across the room if he crawled, lol.

  • my DD will be 8mo on Sunday. She will get into the crawling position, cry, then just roll to get where she wants to go. she does the back & forth thing too. she's sorta doing a roll/army crawl. but she wont do any of it while i directly watch her haha. i had to do a hidden video type thing to know see for sure.

  • My little guy will be 9 months on Feb. 20 and started completely crawling about 1 month ago. He was pulling himself with his arms for about a month before that. He has mastered the belly/crawling position to sitting position and the sitting position to crawling as well. He is also pulling himself up on everything. He cannot stand without holding onto anything yet but I am sure he will be doing it soon enough!!

  • Nik got into the crawling position st about 5 and a half months, he started rocking and scooting at about 6 months. Now at 7 months he's getting the hang of crawling pretty well. He gets where he wants to go.

  • My son rocked at 4 months. Army crawled at 6. Now he crawls, (though he seems to prefer army crawling). He also stand up against furniture and walks along it, and has started trying to stand on his own. (he's 8 months.)
