It may take her longer to crawl. All babies crawl at their own pace. My 34 weeker crawled at 6 months he was 5lbs2oz at birth. My 4lbs 35 weeker crawled at 5 months. My 6lbs 10Oz 36 weeker crawled at 7.5 months. She'll crawl when she's ready :)

My preemie is 10 1/2 months 9 months adjusted and isn't crawling. She was a 34 weeker. She is in PT through early intervention to help her with crawling. Preemies want to extend their legs. They don't want to flex their muscles as much and obviously in order to crawl the legs need to be flexed. So we mostly are working on flexing her legs and getting her comfortable so we can work more toward her crawling.
Preemies all do things at their own pace, just be patient and loving!

my son has low muscle tone so he has been doing this one sided army crawl and is receiving PT to help learn how to crawl on all fours.
