Ds is 5months and 3weeks and sort of wriggles around knees come under the bum and bum goes up and he shuffles forward cute to see, its sort of like a commando crawl and he gets so determined trying to move around but hes doing a great job atm
I wonder when he will get the proper crawl, but atm the commando crawl is gorgeous

11 months and 1 week....I thought it was never going to happen. Now all I have to wait for is teeth!

It was just before 7 months, not really proper crawling, but not commando crawling either, sort of a cross between the two. He could crawl before he could sit.

Tahlia started commando crawling at 5 months, and started crawling properly at 7 months....

Phoenix started to commando crawl at 4 months, was fast as lightning at getting from one of the house to the other, and at 8 months started the up off the floor 'normal' crawling.
He is also cruising on furniture now; and has been for almost 2 months. Eeek!

Our DS has been commando crawling for about 3 mths & started crawling for the first time yesterday!!!

DS started crawling at exactly 9 months. I never thought it would happen. Hes into everything now.

Commando crawling the last few weeks but decided she would crawl properly right on 9 months.

At about 7 months Rhys started to army crawl and a month and a half later he crawled on all fours
Now I have to chase him

DD started crawling properly at 8mths. She had been rocking since 6 mths and trying to crawl since about 7mths but she could never get the process right!! She would either go backwards and run into a wall or go forwards one and then fall on her belly. Now shes crawling all over the place!!

I'm so glad I found this. I have been really worried that my daughter couldn't crawl. She will be 11 months next week and she did her first real crawl today. She's been commando crawling for months.
All my other kids crawled at around 7-8 months, so I didn't expect her to crawl so late.

Gee I'm glad i have found this thread.... My DD is 7.5mths & some of the babies in my Feb 07 parents group have started to crawl & i was worried as Nitara hasn't even looked at crawling. She hates tummy time & will roll onto her back (but not back again) & just this month has started sitting unsupported, but still topples over easily LOL
Thanks ladies you have helped me stop worrying about it!

Commando crawling at 6 months and proper crawling a couple of weeks later. He is now almost 10 months.

I would say my DS started to crawl at 6 months (2 weeks ago). He is crawling on one knee and one foot, very funny to watch.

My son started at 6mths and walked on his first bday, DD just started 2wks ago and she is 9.5mths. Just so long as they crawl before they walk, this helps their development for later in life apparantly.

Sorry this is a bit of a vent
It's just so nice to know we're not alone...DS is 10m1w and still not even commando crawling. He LOVES to sit up (has done since he was 6 mo) and HATES being on his tummy (cries hysterically) so I put it down to that. When sitting he'll do 360's and loves to pull himself to standing holding my hands. Has just worked out how to cruise along holding the coffee table but can't actually pull himself up there on his own or let himself down yet - I guess I shouldn't help him do it but he's SO cute and he loves it so much
I get a bit frustrated sometimes, all the other bubs in our mums group are crawling, and it seems EVERYONE I come across feels the need to comment on the fact that he's not crawling yet. My oh so wise cousin (who has perfect children by the way, who both reached all their milestones early and have wonderful language skills ) tells me he "really needs to learn for proper development" and "maybe you should take him to a physio or O.T." grrr
I guess he'll just do it when he's good and ready! He has great skills in other areas, he talks incessantly, points at everything and can clap and wave bye-bye on request (without copying).

Commando crawling at 7 mths and proper crawling the day he was 8 months.

hey, i write all my bub's little milestones down but i dont have nmy info with me at the moment and my stupid brain can't really remember but i think my child started crawling at around 6-7months but was trying to crawl and rolling around from around 5 mths. don't get worried that your child is "slow" to begin certain things. all babies are different.

DD - 8 months
DS - over 10 months at the moment and still waiting!!

DS#1 was 3 days before his 1st birthday.
DD about 15 months, she was a bottom scooter from around 11 months. He walked at 15 months, she walked at 16 months. They are both "normal" and never had any developmental problems.
