  • Six months is still a little early for crawling. MOST babies don't learn this until they're 8-9 months old. Is he able to sit up by himself. Just keeping doing the tummy time. Place toys just out of his reach to get him scooting.

  • He's not lazy. He's just not developmentally ready.

  • He's not lazy. Each kid goes at their own pace. Don't rush it. He'll grow up too fast as it is. My son didn't crawl until after he was 9 months.

  • Don't worry, some kids don't crawl at all, they skip right over it. I nannied a little girl who would drag herself around the floor with one leg when she could sit up on her own, she never once crawled, she scooted until she could walk.

  • Try the tummy time, and put your hands on his feet where he pushes up and it teaches him that he will move forward if he uses his feet.
