If you're child was a crawler: How long until she's crawling?

I know that some kids never crawl, but let's just say if she does. She's 7 months old now. For the past week she has been pushing up onto her hands and knees for awhile, and then she'll just lay back down. How long do you figure until she's crawling?

  • My son crawled at 8 months... I think that's about average! He sort of did "the worm" for a while, would rock on all fours (around 7 months) and then crawled. Some kids don't crawl until 10 months or so. I tell ya - when they start crawling, it takes babyproofing to a whole new level!

  • My son started crawling 1 month ago, about 10 months old. He started by doing that, then he started to get on his knees, move his hands, then go flat. It kind of reminded me of an inch worm. He finally figured out the knees 2-ish weeks ago.

  • My son had the stance down at about 6ish months...but it took him another few weeks to get the "idea" of crawling, and a few more weeks to master it. He's 8mos now and is EVERYWHERE! and QUICK!

  • A week...a month...a couple of months...there really is no way to tell.

    My oldest started crawling after a week of being on hands and knees. My second army crawled for 3 months before he hit his knees, then he walked a week later! My youngest just took off crawling one day! LOL

  • For both my kids it was right around the 7.5-8month mark. Both started rocking, then scooting backwards lol then finally going forward.
