  • Yes. You might want to look at some charts of infant milestones on the web. Here's one: http://www.webmd.com/parenting/healthtool-infant-milestones

  • My Son started crawling at 10 months, a few months before He started walking. Every child is different, just enjoy the baby times and he will do it when he is ready.

  • My dd was crawling around the 8 1/2 month age, and at 9 1/2 months, she started walking. It was weird.

    No worries momma! He'll crawl when he's ready :)

  • Perfectly normal. Some children skip crawling all together, some crawl as early as they can, and some wait until they're nearly 1 before they start crawling. It all depends on the child. As long as he's developing well otehrwise.

  • Mine didn't really crawl until about 9 months. Crawled for about 2 weeks, then started walking (more like running)!

  • Totally normal. My son was about 8 1/2 months, but it seemed like he started rocking back and forth on his knees one day, and then the next he was crawling. I know you are anxious to watch your baby grow up and hear this a bunch, but try to relax and enjoy your non-mobile baby. Before you know it he will be climbing on top of the table and you sometimes wish he will just stay still for 5 seconds. At least I do.
