  • it depends on the baby. with my first he didn't start to crawl until after he started walking (which was at 12mo). the second could crawl at 5 or 6 mo. the third could crawl around 6 mo. crawling is not a milestone....they don't have to crawl

  • My daughter was 4 and a half months when she started crawling but my son didn't until he was 8 months old. Just depends...

  • Depends on the child and the parents both. A good parent will always help the child along, lifting them up on all fours to help them begin to strengthen those muscles before the crawling actually begins. Also encouraging your child with their favorite toy or treat will do wonders for getting them to begin crawling forward to reach them. Some kids will crawl earlier than others though, it sort of depends on how independent, fit and motivated the child is to begin crawling.

  • My oldest walked around 7 months, never crawled
    Middle child walked at 8 mos, never crawled.

    It will vary from kid to kid...

  • Depends on the baby, of course, but my almost 8 month old is just about to start.
