RE: Post 1026 - 10 month old not crawlin

Most babies only start crawling by the age of 10 months.Many babies completely skip over the crawling stage and quickly learn to stand unsupported. They then start walking having never crawled. There is really no need for you to be concerned as your baby is making very good progress.

Hi Eve
My little one is also 10months and not crawling –  I have started to put toys in shoe boxes about 1 ½  meters from him. He is very curious and this seems to motivate him as he already started to move on his tummy. Maybe you can try this.

My friend ' s baby crawled vey late, she was extremly worried thinking he' s got a sirious problem, he sarted crawling at 11& half months, he is now 13months still not walking. it' s a matter of time dont worry much, he will get there.
Just try and stretch his legs and play games with him,he will craw and will eventually walk. U must dance run he will as well want to do what you do. maybe the day he starts he will stand up instead of crawling. Good Luckl
