  • You know, since the whole "back to sleep" thing, many babies totally skip crawling.
    Walking varies. My boy was crawling by 8 months, walking by 12 months.
    Some kids walk as soon as 9 months, some as late as 18 months. They'll do it as they're ready. All kids are different.

  • Don't worry about the crawling - it's not even an official "milestone" that doctor's look for. If he does - great. If not - oh well.

    That said, most babies who are going to crawl, crawl by 10 months.

    Babies learn to walk without holding on to things sometime between 9 and 16 months - that's a huge span of time!

  • I wouldn't worry too much about the crawling, like she said it's not a major milestone. But my little one started trying at 4mon. Had it down pack at 5mon. Now she is trying to walk but she is 10mon.
