When did your preemie start crawling?

My little girl was born at 28 weeks at 2 lbs 8 oz. She is now 7.25 months actual and 4.5 months adjusted. She has mastered the rolling from tummy to back and back to tummy but now she always rolls from her back to tummy and gets so mad but it seems like shes trying so hard to crawl. She is about 16 lbs now. When did you see your preemie crawling?

my guy was a 32 1/2 weeker and he started crawling at 10 months. It did seem like it took forever, and he never did the army crawl just went straight to crawling on hands and knees.

32 weeker didn't crawl till ten months. Get her up on her hands and knees every day so she can strenghten her muscles. It will happen pretty quickly after that if she really wants it

My 32 weeker started army crawling around 10 months, but didn't actually crawl on hands and knees until right before he turned 12 months. He didn't walk until 15 months. Now he is 2 1/2 and is the fastest little boy I know! :)
