Q.

at 10mnths no teeth and no crawling yet??

Doc

My baby is almost ten months but does not have any teeth yet.He also doesn' t crawl yet.I put him on the floor on his tummy to encourage him to crawl but he won' t.He does move in his walking ring though but not much either. Should I be worried?

Do not be concerned.Many babies skip the crawling stage completely and simply start to walk when they are about 13 or 14 months or earlier.Also do not be concerned about your baby's teeth. It is very common for babies to be late with teething. His teeth will appear.
