DS is trying so hard to crawl but rather than stay on his hands and knees he's pushing himself up onto is toes. He's not worked out that he needs to move his arms and just ends up nodding back and forward for ages before falling over. I wondered how long this might last for or does it just vary wildly? He's getting really frustrated.
That phase was a few weeks long for DS, but babies vary so wildly and it's all experimentation until they find something that works. DS occasionally still pushes himself into that position, but now it means he wants me to flip him over in a forward roll! It's a frustrating time because you KNOW what he needs to do, but he needs to find out by trial and error.
Twas a few months of this behaviour for my DD as she didn't try to crawl everyday - she wasn't hugely bothered but then sometimes she'd try and get frustrated. At 10 months she perfected a crab crawl rather than a nice elegant crawl like her mates!
DD was 'bounce crawling' the sitting in crawl position bouncing not sure what to do from there crawl from 4 months to around 5 months then 'mooncrawled' backwards for four days them boom she was off like a shot at about 5 and a bit months there was no stopping her! my friends wee girl on the other hand didnt move at all till 11 months when suddenly she 'slithered' around, within a couple of weeks she was crawling and now at 13 months is trying to walk all the time tho she cant quite support herself yet but if you hold her hands she is off all babies are different your DS will get there.
