Did your crawler do this?

My son is standing on his own and can take a step or two before falling down. Yesterday I noticed he wasn't crawling anywhere but would just lay on his stomach. This morning he is moving around, but it is the most peculiar crawl. He has one leg straight with the foot flat on the ground, the other leg is in crawling position. He has one arm up in the air and the other on the ground in crawling position. It looks SO uncoordinated and would be comical if I wasn't so worried. Do you think he is trying to walk by himself and just doesn't get it? I'm wondering if this is a normal step for babies who are starting to walk.
I appreciate any similar stories or advice. Thanks ladies for your help :)

  • My baby changes the way she crawls daily. She can't make up her mind what way she likes best lol She has done that crawl before though.
