Q.

Not crawling yet

My Lo will be 1 in December, but she is still not crawling. She moves around a lot backwards on her tummy but shows little signs of lifting her bottoms to the crawling position.

Should I be worried about this?

Do not worry. Many babies skip the crawling stage completely. They simply start to pull themselves up by holding onto things and learn to stand and then start to walk when they are around 13 or 14 months old.
