    I always wondered if babies will just get going and crawl one day or if moms need to help them a lil ..I usually put max on his tummy and fold his legs but he flops back on his belly ..

    He kicks and jumps in his jumperoo but wont crawl as of yet should i help him or will he let me know whens hes ready

    He'll get it one day.. However as aly said a toy out of reach encourages them

    my ds was nearly 8 months, and we put a teddy in front of him and he dragged himself along on his tummy for it. He did this for months until he eventually started crawling on his knees.
    He will do it when hes ready, hes a bit young yet xxx

    Seth has started pushing himself along on his legs, and he can lift him bum up and his head too, but he spends a lot of time on his tummy and always has. Especially now he can roll over he never lies on his back anymore. I think thats probably helped him to strengthen his back and neck :)
