  • It depends. Every child is different. My Son started when he was about 10 months, my daughter started when she was about 7 months. Your daughter will start when she's ready. Be prepared to chase her from now on!

    Hope this helps a bit!

  • Each child is different for example My daughter started crawling at 9 months and was walking on her own by 10 1/2 months my 1st son crawled at 10 months and walked at 11 months but I have seen babies crawl as early as 6 months and as late as 11 months so it depends...

  • There is quite a range of what is normal for a baby to start crawling. I know one baby who did not crawl until 10 months. Is she rolling over? Sitting up? Does she have regular pediatrician appointments? Get your dr's opinion if she is not doing any of these things.

  • She should start to crawl between 8 and 11 months. Roll up a towel and put it under her belly when you put her on the floor since she does not like to lie on her tummy. Get down on the floor with her and face her, let her look at you as you talk to her, play with her and amuse her. You might also need to show her where her elbows belong by putting them close to her body so that it will be easier for her to push up.

  • She'll do fine! The baby I sit for hated to be on his stomach. Then all of a sudden he was up on all 4's. Enjoy!
