Callie is 8 months 2 weeks old.. she sits unattended.. and has for a while.. she also gets up on all fours.. and has for about 2 months!! but.. she hasnt started crawling yet.. I know I know that I should just let her be because I know once she starts. she wont stop haha.. Im just wondering when your LOs started crawling and it would be great to hear from some that didnt start until later on.. a friend of mine her baby 2 weeks older then callie is already walking.. its hard to compare!
My LO sat unassisted around 5 1/2-6 months old. He started getting up on all fours when he was around 8 months old, and standing when propped up around 7 1/2 months. He can now pull up to standing, and cruises (just before he turned 9 months). However, it wasn't until today that he started scooting around on the floor (not proper crawling still). He just pulls himself forward with his arms. It works for him, so I am now having to keep a closer eye on him. Some babies just skip the crawling stage altogether and go straight to walking! Hope this helps
My LO has been 'commando' crawling for about 6 weeks now, but not full (up on the kneees) crawling. Not sure he will as he makes very good speed and distance with this method! He gets on all fours and rocks, and pulls himself up to standing etc. and edges along. A lot of poeple who say their babies are crawling do mean the tummy down style and not full crawling, which is why it sounds like their bubs started young. I think motivation plays a big role - we have two cats and most of his crawling involves chasing them!
Reuben sat up unaided, confidantly from 5 months, but he hated lying on his back, and spent a lot of time mastering that sitting position!
However, he had no interest in crawling whatsoever until 9 months, at which point it was backwards for about 3 feet, then to sitting position. He had 2 weeks of comando crawling at 9.5 months, no rocking on all fours, but straight to full on crawling at eactly 10 months. However, although he likes to pull up on furniture, has NO idea what to do with his feet, so i think it will be a while before he walks.
Its true - there is no stopping them, my most used word now seems to be no, as he his crawling towards the catflap, pulling DVD's out of the stand etc!
thank you guys!!! I appreciate the info on your LOs.. She is up on all fours.. and rocking but no crawling yet.. she does push herself backwards on the hardwood... She might go forward but I think its easier to push her rolls rather then pull them
