Does your baby do this?

My 8 month old sometimes crawls with her head down, looking at the floor. I think she's doing it playfully but sometimes she'll bump into things with her head. I don't remember my older child ever doing this, does yours? I'm going to bring it up at her 9 mo appt just wondering.

  • No, my son never did this, but it sounds really cute! My son is currently turning his head from side to side when he's sitting up. I think things like his, and your daughter's, are just to see how things look when they do something different. She's running into things because she isn't looking where she's going - hopefully it's not hurting her! Regardless, I think she will probably stop soon and move on to some other cute thing.

  • I have noticed my son doing that, but not long enough to run into something. Maybe they think get more speed that way. LOL She will eventually figure it out.
