How can I help my 7 month old learn to crawl?

She can already roll over and push up on her arms but she doesn't really know how to move her legs to get anywhere lol. I was just wondering if there was anything I could do to help her learn!

  • Just lay her on her tummy every day. She'll learn instinctively.

  • girlie... they will crawl when they are ready.. Kadin is almost 9 months trying to crawl now! But,.. get on the floor with ur lil one, get behind them, put ur hand on ther feet while they are in a crawling position, dont push let them push off of ur feet... work with ur lil one on the floor the most.. the more they are on the floor the better. But that hint I gave u about putting ur hand on there feet I learned from therapy kadin is in physcial therapy

  • Or try putting something in front of them so they can try to reach out and get it. They will eventually get it don't rush it.

  • Your baby will crawl whenever she is ready. Our DD learned how to crawl AFTER she learned how to walk ;)

    Dont push her. Dont force her. Giver her toys and she will either try to reach them or not.

  • im doing the same thing with my 7 month old! shes on the floor all the time now, and i keep putting toys just out of her reach. she goes backward great but cant seem to go forward yet lol. you can help by putting your hand behind her feet so she can push off this will help to learn the concept of going forward. good luck!
