He's 7 months old and isn't crawling yet. Big flippin' deal!!
[sarcasm][sarcasm] Before heads explode!
So, my son, as the title says is 7 months old. He gets tummy time everyday and hasn't crawled yet but my MiL & HER mother are making a big deal out of it. It's stupid. He's not laying there lethargic. He rolls like a crocodile, he bounces in his standing bouncer, he walks in his rolling-walker but he hasn't got up into a full blown crawl position and my in-laws are making a huge deal out of it. Everytime he's visiting, they try to pick his hips up and force him to crawl and it's kinda bugging the shit out me. Like the pediatrician said, he will get moving when he's ready! He's to the point now where he pushes with his knees and slides upper half when he wants to get to a toy. And like I said, he gets tummy time, a LOT of tummy time. Personally, I didn't start crawling til almost 10 months, and I was walking unassisted by my 1st birthday. My little brother actually never crawled. Shockingly enough, he didn't like being on his belly so he'd roll over, get up on his knees and pick himself up to walk along furniture. Why are they making such a huge deal out this and why are they trying to force him to crawl and why the heck is this ticking me off so much?! I sense a disturbance in my hormonal force.
