What follows?

Hi Doc 

My baby girl (who is now 8 months old) started sitting unsupported at 6 months old. When can / should I expect her to start crawling? She absolutely hates lying on her tummy and her legs do move in the crawling action, but I don''t think she is strong enough yet to lift herself? Is there anything that I can do to help her?

She also has 2 bottom teeth (they both appeared within a matter of a week), are the next one''s the top 2? And how long before they appear? She defintely has the signs that they are on their way but nothing yet.

Your baby is doing very well with her milestones. Most babies crawl by the age of 10 months. Some babies do so a month or so earlier. Your baby seems to be getting ready to crawl already. You do not have to help her as she is doing well by herself.
Her teeth are coming through exactly on time as well. Her upper two incisors should be through very soon.
