  • Crawling not a developmental milestone and many babies never crawl.

  • My son didn't crawl until he was nearly 9 months old due to Viral Pneumonia severely setting him back when he was 5 months old. He also didn't roll over until he was about 8 months old.

  • My dd started crawling around 8 months but only crawled for a week and was walking after that. But my nephew never crawled and walked right at 7 months. And a good friend of mine her lil guy started crawling at 9months and is not walking at 14 months. So it is so different with each child.

  • My DD is almost 10 months and just figured out forward momentum this past week. She still isn't really crawling in the traditional sense and she had been rolling everywhere instead. She is also trying to pull herself up at the same time, so I don't think she will be on the floor for long.

  • My oldest crawled at 9 months, and my youngest who is six months is almost crawling, so it depends.
    And it IS a developmental milestone. Crawling is very important for nerve connections in the brain when the baby makes the cross motions with the arms and legs.
