Our baby is 9 months old and not crawling yet. Is there something wepng with it?

If you're concerned (as you've posted on here I would suggest you are) then you should visit your health visitor/GP to get them checked.

However, none of my children crawled, not even bum shuffling (they were all flagged up by the health visitor) but they all started walking around 10 months. It isn't necessarily something you need to be overly concerned about just yet.

Honestly unless there are other things compounding your concerns I wouldn't worry for a second about not crawling at 9 months. So long as your little one can move around somehow by the time they're 12 months old - crawling, bum shuffling, creeping, cruising or walking - that's absolutely fine.

My 14 month old started crawling at maybe 11 months, around the same time he started taking steps.
