  • Crawling is NOT a milestone. Some babies crawl and some don't. All perfectly normal.

  • If you want to work with 2nd twin, first give LO time. Not all kids work at the same pace. LO may be exhibiting their differences in personalities already :) next keep working with them during tummy time. hold LO so that their hips rests on a rolled up towel (they are in t he form of crawling. Next, once they've gotten that down, move their legs one by one as if you're helping them crawl. Do this slow cuz you want them to coordinate the arms with the leg movement. Good luck :)

  • it's normal because some babies don't crawl at all. They go from scooting to toddling. Please do not rush your child. Let him do it on his own.

  • I have to add that crawling helps with gross motor. Yes some babies skip it but you want them to be able to coordinate their movements successfully. Don't let your baby skip this milestone.
