Do you have a lazy baby?

I do, she's almost a year and is not crawling or trying to pull herself up. She wiggles slowly sometimes. But she really has no desire or need to get moving. Her brother and sister keep her well stocked with toys and entertain her.
Understand that I don't mind her staying put, it's easier on me! lol It's just different as her older sibs were moving as soon as they could. It's almost peaceful and I've not had to baby proof my house for a walker/crawler just yet.

  • Is baby just not being challenged enough to crawl? I know in the beginning I wasn't challenging my son enough, as I ALWAYS put his toys in arms reach.. and it seemed to take forever for him to crawl, but then a friend of mine suggested that regardless if he cried because he wanted it.. to put toys just out of reach.. and sure enough.. he crawled.
