  • most babies will scoot backwards and then they crawl a few weeks or days soon after that.

  • My babies starting crawling at different ages. My first was about 5mo. when he started, my second was around 8months and my 3rd around 6mo. Every child developes at their own pace. My niece never crawled she just went right to walking.
