  • Yep! My 10 mo old is still not crawling! We are joking that she will talk before she crawls because she is very social and a big "talker". Your baby is clearly meeting all of the other milestones (as is mine) so it is not a worry. It might be considered a "red flag" if baby is not crawling by 12 mos, but certain;y not a concern before then.

  • Crawling is not a developmental milestone; many babies never crawl.

  • My baby is 8 months. She doesnt crawl, and she also likes to stand while I hold her hands, and is starting to hold herself up against things. The Ped told me that crawling is not a milestone and as long as all other indicators are good, its okay. Also, she told me some babies never crawl, and thats okay, I wouldnt be concerned.

  • Mine NEVER crawled. Straight to walking at ten months.
