My 7 week old is scooting around already! Is that normal?

I left him on his belly for tummy time last night and watched as he scooted about 3 feet across the floor in less than 5 minutes. Is this normal or is he super baby? He can already hold his head up well, giggle and tries cooing and gooing.

  • My LO did that too. Which is why I waited to pierce her ears until she was 5 months. I didn't want the earings to get stuck on the carpet becasue of her scootching. At 5 months she was crawling.
