What age do babies normally start to crawl?

My dd is six months old today and can crawl a few feet. I just wanted to know when I should expect a full blown crawl.

  • Any day now.
    The "normal" range is any where from 4 months to 10 months. Once they can get moving, they get moving FAST very quickly.

  • The official I believe is 7-9 months but my daughter is 7 months and cant crawl. I went from doing what your baby is doing now right to pulling up and walking when I was a baby so it really depends on him and how he learns.
