  • She will crawl when she has mastered all the steps that lead up to crawling. She's trying and that is a good thing. Encourage her by putting a toy or other item she might find interesting a foot or two in front of her. She will figure out that she has to crawl to get to it. Meanwhile, don't watch every second - pretend to look through a magazine and look at her occasionally. Give encouragement when she moves toward the item. She will crawl when she is ready.

  • Some kids skip crawling and go straight to walking. She'll do one or both of those when she's ready!

  • Mine has been doing the army crawl for six months. (Were she pulls herself forward with her arms). Now she's trying to stand.
