Q.

Baby is belly crawling?

I am not sure what else to call it he is moving around uses his feet and hands but is still on his belly, does this mean he is on his way to crawling on all fours. He is 8 and half months

This is called creeping and often occurs before crawling. Your baby may well be getting ready to crawl. Most babies crawl by the age of 10 months.
