DS (nearly 3) first crawled about 9 months and DD started crawling at 6 months and 1 day. So a fair difference between them  original.gif

Our ds was crawling properly right on 6 months.  Had spent the month before rolling wherever he wanted to go.

My DS has just been crawling for about 3 weeks just before he turned 6 months. He was crawling properly on the carpet at my mums while we were on holidays but now we are at home he is lazy and just commando crawls along the floorboards. Typical Male!

I have 4 kids and 3 stepkids.
The ages mine crawled (in order) were 6 months, 7 months,
7 months, and 10 month old still a lazy bones.

She 360s everywhere and gets up on her knees but i really don't think she is going to crawl.  I try to get the other kids "out of her face" so she has room to move. hopefully that will help. But at the moment I am glad to know I can run to the loo and she will be roughly in the same vicinity I put her down. lol.

My 3 eldest all walked within a couple of weeks of their 1st birthday so maybe Eb will walk before she crawls.

My son started proper crawling @ 5 1/2mths. never commando crawled. started sitting unassisted @ 6mths, when he learnt to get himself into a sitting position from hands & knees. was standing & walking with assistance very early but still not standing or walking alone at 10 months. he's been SO close for a couple of months now, barely holds on.

DS Was up on all 4's at about 5m4w then started his own version of crawling at about 6m 2w- hes progressivley got better at his own version of crawling, and over the last week has crawled properly- which we never really noticed until this weekend  blush.gif  as he's been moving around in his own way!

DS started crawling on all fours at around 8 and half months. DD is 7 and half months and no wear near that stage unsure.gif. I suspect she won't crawl until she is around 9-10months.

DS did his first on all fours crawl yesterday it was the cutest thing I have ever seen  wub.gif he was on all fours thinking for a while then very slowly got the arms with leg co-ordination right!  He has been rocking on all fours for about two weeks now, then was moving his legs but not his arms.

He has been able to get himself around the place though by rolling, back shuffling etc from about 5.5 months.

He started his worm like crawl at 6 months old and hasn't progressed to a "normal" crawl since. He manages to get around fast enough to grab all the naughty things he shouldn't  happy.gif

I chose 6-7 months because he just started to crawl proper about 3 weeks ago (he still mostly only does it at my mum's as she has carpet and we have hardwood)but he started camando crawling right before 6 mths.
