  • My baby girl is 9 months and has been crawling since she was 7 months. She got a lot of practice in her playpen and us putting her on carpeted floor for her to move around. Now she's stands up holding on to furniture. Some babies skip crawling and start walking first. Good luck.

  • crawling is not a milestone so if your child chooses not to dont worry! My mom said i never crawled she said i stood up one day and took off lol i would try a roll away ball. i got dd one at walmart and hen you push the buttons it sings and rolls awal so the child goes after it!

  • My dd crawled at 10 months. My ds is 8 1/2 months and just started. You just have to put their toys barely out of reach and let them try to figure out how to get to them. They may not ever "crawl". As long as they show interest in their environment, crawling is really not important. In 3 months, she'll probably be walking everywhere, and whether or not she crawled a day in her life will be totally irrelevant.
