  • Most babies learn to crawl between the ages of 6 and 10 months . But every baby is different . My son started crawling at 8 months , and My Daughter started at 7 months , (:

  • Once a child can roll, you nedn't worry about them sleeping on their backs or tummies. My son crawled at 6 months.

  • My eldest son was about 6-7 months old before he crawled but didn't walk until after his first birthday... my 2 younger children crawled by 4-5 months old, walked by 9 months old (I used to get freaked out because they were short and walking, and horror flix come to mind)... each child is different!!! My middle son was crawling by 4 and half months and walking by nine months old and my youngest was 5 months crawling and 9 and half month walking (full walking not cruising couches)
