  • My son was 5 and a half months but every baby is different. I know a couple babies that didn't start crawling until they were 9 months.

  • That depends on the baby, every baby is different, and some babies never really crawl, they go straight to walking, that's how I was when I was a baby. But my DD was about 5 or 6 months old when she started to crawl.
    Most babies crawl between 6 and 10 months. If they haven't mastered it by 12 months, seek a doctors help, because their may be problems. Otherwise, have no worries. They normally start by scooting. Be sure to make sure your little one gets some belly time (supervised) daily, to help build up the muscles needed to help them crawl.

  • Some babies don't crawl at all. It all depends on the child. I have a friend who's son went from scooting on his butt, to walking. My son started crawling WELL at six months. Started trying around 5 or so. Walking at 9 or 10. And running at 13. All babies are different. Google baby milestones, and you should find one that has something to do with crawling. =]

  • As others have said..all babies are different. Try not to compare yours to others. "Normal ranges' usually vary by as much as 4 or 5 months. I had one crawl at 5 months but not walk until 13 months. Another never crawled and was running at 10 months. My g-kids both crawled around 6-7 months. She walked at 12 months..He didn't walk until 15 months.
