  • teething was all over the place, one of mine got teeth at around 5 months, another of mine was over 12mths before any came through.
    Crawling, they were around 8 or 9 months, although my third did a commando crawl from 5 months.
    Try not to worry about it, your baby will do things on his own timeline.

  • My first started teething around 2-3 months, but didn't get his first tooth until 6 months. He didn't start crawling until 11 months.

    My second started teething around 4 months or so, but didn't get her first tooth until about 7 months. She was crawling around 7 months.

    There's no telling how long yours will go. There's such a wide range of "normal" with babies. 5 months is early for both, though, so yours definitely can in no way be considered behind at all.
