  • Don't worrry about it....my son didn't start crawling until he as 13 months and by the time he was 14-15 he was walking... I've seen other mom's on here say they have known or heard of babies that didn't do those things until 18 months.

  • My son walked on his first birthday, he crawled at around 9 1/2 months, but all kids are different. If he has met other age appropriate milestones, than don't worry, and ask your Dr. on his next well baby!

  • Every baby is different! There is nothing "wrong" with not crawling yet! Now, that being said, if there are other red flags, then I would bring them up with the pediatrician at his 12 month WBV. In the meantime, try lots of floor play! The more, the better :)

  • Some babies never crawl. My oldest son only crawled for about a month before he started walking, he didn't like to crawl. Is she pulling herself up on furniture? She'll walk when she's ready!!

  • your baby's ok :) he's just layed back (what's the rush) our daughter was 10 mo. when she started crawling & she was 8 weeks premature so did that actually make her 12 mo.?
