  • mine started to crawl around 7 months. Although he really isn't up on his hands and knees, he more does a half army crawl, half pushes himself forward on his feet thing. But it gets him where he wants to go.
    Some babies never crawl, neither my husband nor I did and we both walk fine :)
    Just wait it out it will happen

  • My daughter is 9 months and still isn't crawling . . .she makes it around though. Either she is scooting or on her tummy pushing backwards. I think she will crawl any day now.

  • Mine was 5.5 months when he started crawling. SUPER early I know. Most babies don't til they are 7 months or so. And again, not all babies crawl. Some go straight to walking. Every baby is different and it doesn't mean something is wrong or you aren't doing something right. It just means your baby has it's own personality!!!

  • DD is 6 months and 3 days and she crawled for the first time on her 6 month bday. But it's a half-creep, half-crawl.
