  • My son didn't master it until about 10 months old but that's when we moved into a house with carpet. We had only tile until then, so he only crawled on our bed.

  • My first didn't crawl until 11 months, and he mastered it pretty much right away. My second started army crawling around 6 or 7 months, to hands-and-knees crawling about a month later.

    It really depends on the baby. And remember that it's not actually a developmental milestone. As long as baby is getting around somehow by 9 months, whether by rolling, scooting, crawling, army crawling, cruising, walking, however, it's all good. :)

  • he started army crawling when he was 7 months. he mastered crawling at 9 months. as soon as he learned that he started learning how to walk. he's still mastering walking. every baby is different. as long as they are doing something then it's normal.

  • My dd mastered crawling a few days after her 6 month checkup, she had been scooting around for a few weeks.

  • Never. Cruised first, then walked at ten months but never crawled.

  • My daughter is almost a year old and not crawling yet. She was 6 weeks early though and there is a wide range of normal so our Dr is not concened yet as she is meeting other milestones... We have an appt next week though and we will see what he says then about it. I think she is getting close but she just isn't there yet.
