  • You cant really do anything besides encourage him. Like have you and your husband sit across the room from eachother and call him to you guys. This is what we did when my son was first trying to walk and he was a pro by day 3.

  • There's nothing you can do. Make sure he has a safe place to explore. He'll do it when he's ready.

  • You can also put him on the floor with a toy he wants just out of reach so he has to wriggle on over and get it. Then get excited when he reaches the toy. Mostly just give him lots of play time on the floor and he will figure it out soon enough on his own.

  • Nothing, other than put him on the floor with some toys and have fun watching him figure it all out!

  • Keep in mind that crawling is not a developmental milestone and many babies never crawl...

  • Just let him do his thing.
