How old was your baby before he/she crawled?

My Hubby and I are having a debate. I think our son is right on track, and my Hubby remembers our daughter being more advanced. Jack isn't even six months old yet, and he scoots, and rocks, but still no crawling. I think he is going to walk first, if we hold his hands he takes several steps now, what do you all think?

  • My son was crawling at 6 months. He crawled across the couch turned around and dropped his legs off the side until he was on the floor then crawled away! It was amazing and shocking. i think that your little one is on the right track as long as he's getting plenty opportunity to practice with tummy time.

  • 4 months but he was very early with everything. He rolled over at 8 days.
    Some babies never crawl. And our son walked holding hands at 6 months but he didn't take his first steps independently until 11 months.

  • My oldest was 10 months, my youngest was 6 months. Every baby does things at their own pace. My daughter is now 7 months, and she was doing that rocking thing you mentioned about a month before she began to crawl, so she's close!

  • mine crawls hard core and he's 8 months. he's trying to figure out the walking bit though because he can't reach stuff he wants when he crawls. i think sometimes if they're coordinated enough, depending on the child, they'll figure it out when they want to.

  • My son crawled at 7 months and started cruising at the same time... but didn't walk until he was 10 1/2 months
