  • i suspect this is your first kid? calm down . my first didnt crawl until 11 months but walked just after one. my second never crawled at all. he shuffled on his butt at 19 months and only walked after two. they get theres.

  • And some never crawl, they just go right to walking, so don't worry.

  • i agree with kat...some go from sitting to walking. if this does happen just play some crawling games with her like lets be lions or doggies or whatever you get the picture, this helps develop her hand eye coordination. I have a bs (i hate that) in early childhood education, and we had to do this one of the little ones in the center i worked at it works wonders and he would look at us and go play puppy (he was 1 by the way) it was rather cute and funny and yes he still walked too.

  • If she wants to crawl she will do it when she is ready.

  • Mine never crawled. Does she pull up and cruise along the furniture? If so, she'll be walking very shortly and then your headaches will really start! **grin**

    You can't make them crawl.

  • not all babies crawl... my son is 7 months old and scoots and rolls to get around.. if someone told you that if your baby doesnt crawl they can't do higher math... well, i did crawl and still couldnt understand calculus... LOL dont worry.. your baby may go straight to walking next month...

  • my son doesn't crawl, hes almost 9 months, he prefers to roll where he wants to get it seems. He will stand holding onto something but wont pull himself up yet. he sorta starts to get into crawling position but then his balance pulls him off and he ends up rolling over.
