Q.

Baby development

Hi Doc
My boy, 7 months, doesn' t like to crawl, he crawled a couple of time but now he moves to the nearest object and then stands and walk holding on to objects. And when you are holding him, he doesn' t want to sit, wants to stand and walk!Will this affect development i anyway?

This is very common and your baby seems to be in a hurry to start standing and will probably walk early. There is no problem with this. Most babies start crawling at about 9 to 10 months.
