  • Some babies never crawl. My oldest son hated being on his belly. He started pulling up at 9 months and was cruising on the furniture for a while until he started walking. If he fell while walking he cried bloody murder while he dragged himself back to the furniture to get himself back on his feet.

  • She asked for some answers to her question, not the run around about how ur kids never achieved crawling. My son started at 6mths and like 1 week or so. My daughter didn't till like 7mths because she spit up alot when on her belly or when sat up. We had to switch formula to the soy one a few mths before that. All the people I know their babies started at like 6mths. Try looking at some baby websites like try babycenter.com

  • My DS started crawling at around 7 months. He started out with a commando style and was on his hands and knees by 8 months. Don't worry - she'll figure out a way to get around. It may be rolling, crawling, or something else. Once they decide they want to explore, there's no stopping them. I say enjoy it while you can. Before you know it you'll be chasing her everywhere!

  • My daughter started crawling at 6 months. Sometimes they walk before they crawl. I'd try to stimulate him with some toys that are just out of his reach.
