To ask how long after rolling over did your baby start to crawl?

Just that really!

My baby's just started rolling over both ways and I'm curious how long it'll take her to be able to crawl.

I know they're all different, just interested in other people's experiences.

DD was rolling over at 3 months and crawling at 7 months

Dd was a few months. Dd2 is seven months and only rolled both ways a month ago and a few weeks later was crawling. I thought I had a few months of peace left!

mine didn't.

rolling over was fast and efficient, crawling was too slow for her.

she rolled at 5 months, and was cruising by 7 months. No in between.

Dd1 was a few months that should say.

DS1 rolled over at 4 months and never crawled. He just rolled everywhere until he walked at 18 months. DS 2 rolled at 3 months and has got up on is hands and knees at 6 months but no forward momentum yet!

Dd1 crawled 2 months after rolling
Dd2 crawled 9 months after rolling

My eldest rolled at 2 months, crawled at 10 months, my youngest rolled at 5 months and crawled at 12, he didn't walk untill 18 months but is now the most physically developed of the two. They are all different and there is no answer.

DD rolled at 8 wks, was crawling at 20 wks.

Months. Dd loved sitting up with vwry little support from around 4 months but hated rolling and started rolling over herself at about 5 months. She found out she could roll around the room very efficiently at about 8 months and crawled at 10 months, the same day I went back to work. My dh panicked and bought a playpen the same day!

I can't remember....

Ds (my youngest) was rolling early at around 4 months. He didn't start commando crawling until 7-8 months...and then properly crawling the day before his first birthday.

Dd...I can't remember at all. She didn't crawl until 13 months but bum shuffled everywhere

Both mine crawled at 5.5 months - rolling over at about 3 months

Paintedhandprints Tue 09-Aug-16 12:16:27

Rolling at 6.5months, crawling at 7months, cruising at 8.5months, walking alone at 11months. There was a lot of sliding about between rolling and crawling.

DD rolled at 11 months and crawled at 13 months.

DS never rolled or crawled as a baby. He bumshuffled at 11 months and walked at 15 months.

No idea when DD rolled but was crawling at 8 months.
I always say to friends to let the DC take their time.
Be careful what you wish for because once they are mobile it's a fickin' nightmare!

Dd crawled at 8 months and properly learnt to roll 2 weeks later...she had been bum shuffling from about 7 months tho

DramaAlpaca Tue 09-Aug-16 13:21:08

All three of mine rolled over at around 4 months and crawled at 8 months.

Witchend Tue 09-Aug-16 13:32:08

Dd1 rolled after crawling (around 9 months)
Dd2 rolled at 6 weeks, crawled at 5 months. (she is missing her hand so rolling was easier. However crawling was harder)
Ds rolled at 6 months crawled 2 weeks later.

No pattern there.

LaurieMarlow Tue 09-Aug-16 13:37:29

Rolled at 5 months, crawled at 7.

YerAWizardHarry Tue 09-Aug-16 13:39:19

Rolled at 4 months crawled at 8 months

JustMarriedBecca Tue 09-Aug-16 14:03:26

Rolled at 3 months, crawled at 4.5 months. Walked at 12 months for the first time but not properly until 15 or 16 months.

SestraClone Tue 09-Aug-16 14:04:21

Rolled at about 8 weeks, crawled at about 6 months.

MessyBun247 Tue 09-Aug-16 14:05:25

Rolled both ways at 3.5 months. Is now commando crawling at 6.5 months.

redskytonight Tue 09-Aug-16 14:10:22

DS was 7 months later (lazy child)
DD crawled a good few months before she could roll over.

I think you will deduce from this thread that only your baby knows what she's going to do!

Very interesting to read everyone's posts!
Isn't it funny how they're all different!
DD was 4 months old on Friday, will have to wait and see when she starts crawling then.

Another question, when did you move them into their own rooms? She's still in our room at the moment and I'd like her to be in there until she's 6 months old. However, isn't the advice that they should go into a cot when they can roll both ways? There's no way her cot will fit in our room. She's in a Chicco next to me at the moment.
