  • With my experience each child is different. My mother-in-law had some of her children skipping crawling and they grew up very intelligent with no problems.

  • It means NOTHING. Don't listen to OLD PEOPLE. Next time ask her where she got her degree in child development.
    My oldest learned to walk and read the same month - 18 months.

  • They say that its not good for babies to go right to walking only because they learn a lot of their hand eye coordination while they crawl. BUT if she does skip it, she will be able to learn just as fast, and every baby is different.

  • I remember in Psych learning that there is a correlation between babies that go straight to walking and dyslexia. But its just a correlation...its not definitley going to happen, just a higher incidence of it. IDK anyone that it has happened to though.
