  • It’s impossible to put a time line on when babies will perform certain tasks. But on the average, 7 months is when most kick off. My daughter never crawled and started walking at 10 months

  • yeah from 6 months. probably not long now hey!

  • 6 – 8 months is average, some take less, some take longer.

  • My 1st started crawling at 6mths and my 2nd started at 10mths :)

  • I was told that if they sit up before 6 months they are more likely to learn to crawl earlier.
    Some roll over a lot younger than others too by up to 3 weeks earlier than average.
    2 little ones I know of (not related or known to each other even now) slid along on their bottoms with one hnad down on the floor, often holding a toy in the other one. Another one slid along on her stomach, then worked her legs like a frog before she learnt to crawl properly.

  • My first daughter crawled at age 10.5 months then walked at 11.5 months.

  • I’m not sure I really remember but I think it was a little later for my daughter. Maybe more 8, 8 and a half months. But she didn’t like much crawling. She did it just to cross the rooms and then she tried to stand up and walk getting support from the furniture.

  • Our mothers group are all around 7 months of age. One of the bubs started crawling around 6 months, a few of the others at 7 months are looking very close but not quite, and there are a few that don’t look like they are anywhere near crawling.
    One of those things where they all do it at their own pace.
