How did your baby crawl?

Mine did the typical hands and knees crawl. I've seen bum scooters and the army crawl and kids who didn't crawl, just went to walking!
What was your baby's crawling style?

  • My girls all crawled on their hands and knees but my son had to be different. At about 5 months he started doing the army crawl and even crawled up the stairs (he likes to keep me on my toes). Then at around 6 months he learned to crawl with his tummy off the floor but it was never on hands and knees...completely. It was more like two hands, one knee and a foot, lol. It didn't last long though. He was walking by 10 1/2 months.

  • My oldest did an army crawl thing. My next 3 just regular style. My youngest was a preemie & she had weak upper body strength, so she kind of did a weird "worm" type movement. She couldnt use her arms effectivly like an army thing and she didn't do a regular crawl either. Sometimes when she would actually get her knees up & push up on her arms she would start forward & just collapse onto her chest. She actually walked at 11 mo. & barely did an crawling type stuff at all because it was just too hard for her I think.

  • My son did the rocking back and forth on your stomach thing first. That used to crack me up. He wouldn't get anywhere but he put in a lot of work! He eventually got it though.

  • My first son army crawled and then did the regular crawl. My 8 month old is still army crawling and doesn't look like it's gonna change b/c now he's trying to stand up and walk.
