Not worried, just curious. DS has skipped crawling and gone straight to cruising.
I know that is a normal variant, and he’s rolling, commando crawling, sitting, pulling to stand etc so I’m not concerned about him. But I do think he’d find life a lot easier if he could crawl! He gets quite annoyed when he runs out of furniture, and commando crawling is pretty inefficient
If your child skipped crawling, did they learn how to do it later? Or am I wasting my time trying to teach him when he’d much rather be walking?
He started doing that after he started pulling up and cruising though! So technically skipped it.
And yes I know commando crawling is technically still crawling, but it is painfully slow and looks like an enormous effort. I just think normal crawling looks a bit more fun for him, and wondered if he would do it eventually. Kids at nursery seem to crawl everywhere, and he is just stuck walking up and down the sides of tables. Oh well, hopefully he will watch them and copy
