hi there, just lookin for some reassurance really, DD is 1 yr old on2 28th of this month n still not crawling, i know she can do it co s iv seen her go a few steps but it seems shes too lazy, shes got the whole commando crawl down to a tee, my dh keeps sayin theres sumthn wrong but shes so advanced in other ways like speech n copying! i just dont know wot to think??
im not particularly worried cos i think shes the brightest lil thing on the planet but cld be slightly biased!!!

she is crawling, commando crawling... Callum commando crawls still and he is 1 on the 25th, all my kids have crawled like that (I have 2 with cerebral palsy, and 2 normal kids) am not worried at all. Callum can get about very fast commando crawling..

My DS only ever did the commando crawl thing. One day he stood up and walked. I wouldn't worry at this stage.

I know they are all normal, I just was explaining to you that even my 'normal ones' commando crawled lol! grin Callum is walking the furniture but still commando crawls.

I wouldn't worry. Some children never crawl at all, not even commando. Some just go from sitting, roll to furniture and get up and walk! I would worry more if at 18mths she is no further forward iyswim.

My dd never did any crawling (commando or otherwise, or shuffling) until she was 15 mo- she stood up and walked 1 week later.
She is 2.7 now, and has no problems physically- she is just naturally very cautious.

Erm SGK Callum is 1 already????? OMG -How???? shock <<wanders off mumbling>> Where has the last 12 mo gone?

My ds never crawled - just stood up and walked two weeks after his first birthday. I was worried as well, because all his little friend were crawling around, but he just never liked being on his tummy and he always wanted to pick things up to explore them and he couldn't do that when he was crawling. You have nothing to worry about.

LOL at fymandbean grin I second that! You will never have a minutes peace!

DS never crawled either. Up and on his feet at 14-15 mo. Was a bit slower than others at some of the gross motor things, but was a talker not a walker. Now 2.5 and absolutely fine. Don't fret.

she is crawling!
some babies never crawl at all. dd1 never crawled, she cruised at 7 m and then walked at 13 m but she didn't much like being on the floor!
