  • My friends baby was the same way... she just turned 11 months and JUST started crawling... but now that she has that down it looks like she might take off walking pretty soon too!! So unless the pediatrician has concerns about her development I wouldn't worry too much about it yet.

  • If she's concerned, have her set up an appointment to have the baby evaluated by an occupational therapist.

  • My daughter is about to be 10 months. She doesn't "crawl" per say, but she's mobile in her own way. She doesn't hold her bottle either, but she has been sitting on her own for a while. Some babies just take longer to do things. There's no rush.

  • the dr told her a lot of babys don't learn to sit up until 10 months, buut it didn't sound right to me

  • My 3 brothers and I were all walking by that point. But yeah, I guess everyone develops at a different pace. If your nephew does have developmental disorder, it will show up in other ways, too. How is his eye contact and interaction/reaction to being played with?

  • I say don't worry, all kids are different and do things at different times. Maybe she could try giving him more floor time. Sit him up with pillows around him.

  • So she went to her doctor and he wasn't concerned? Why are you?
