  • My daughter didn't start crawling until around 7 months or so.

  • Every child is different. The doctors don't really use crawling as a milestone anymore because so many babies don't crawl. My son crawled at about 7-8 months.

  • My brother never crawled. Some babies just go straight to walking.

  • My son started around 7 months. It all depends on the baby. Some start early and some start late. I wouldn't worry too much. Tummy time really help strengthen their backs. She'll start when she's ready though. Best of luck!

  • Crawling is not a developmental milestone and many babies never crawl.
