Q.

9 Months old baby boy, no teeth, no crawling

Dear Doctor my son is nine months, he is a healthy boy, he weighs 9.5 kg, but he is not crawling nor does he have teeth yet. He is not interested in crawling but he wants to stand all the time. When we are holding him he wants to be held on standing position always. If we put him down he makes himself fall and he starts rolling all over and if he wants something which far from him he rolls over until he gets it, he does not try to crawl so that he can reach it. Is it normal for him to do that and not to be interested in crawling plus he is does not have teeth yet?

Your baby sounds happy and healthy and seems to want to start walking quite soon. So he is quite advanced with his milestones. Most babies only start to crawl at about 10 months. Many babies also skip the crawling phase completely, so do not be concerned about this.  Do not be concerned about your baby's teeth. They will come through even if there is a bit of a delay.
