My 7 mo girl is skipping crawling :-\ She started standing last week...she's gathering quite the collection of bruises from it too. She does army/low crawl though. I think the problem with crawling is that we have laminate floors and vinyl. No carpet outside of the bedroom. I about cried today when she worked up the courage to turn away from what she was supporting herself with and ended up falling REALLY hard. She has a bump and a scrape, but falling is going to be part of it. Just have to pick 'em up, let 'em know it's okay, and encourage 'em to try again! Congrats and get ready to run!
Quoting bshoemaker:Congrats!! It's so much fun to see those mile stones. My son was an early kid so he crawled by 4 months and was running by 8 months. I almost wish he was taking his time.
My 8 month old still isn't.
Aw, congrats! Now the fun starts, mobility is a slippery slope! lol.
DS is 7 months and started crawing at 5 months, he's now trying to pull himself up. DD didnt crawl until 9 months or so and didn't start walking until 16 months. Im hoping with DS and DD being 17 months apart that it will motivate DS to start walking sooner than DD did.
My son was 10 months.
