Is rocking back and forth while sitting

a sign that he may start to crawl soon? He sits up perfectly now at 6 1/2 months and just started leaning forward to get toys. Well right now he's rocking forward to his hands and gets stuck with his legs, so rocks back. He's done it for like ten minutes now and also when he's on his belly he kicks his legs so hard and really seems like he WANTS to crawl.

What did your little one do before crawling and how old were they?

  • Yup! He wants to move. He's just not sure how yet. My son would do this and then he started getting on his belly with his butt up in the air and rocking. He was about 7 months.
