Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Most babies start crawling around 6 months, but some babies never crawl. Crawling is a milestone that isn't really important. Babies crawl or scoot in all sorts of different ways and at different ages, so pediatricians don't pay much attention to it. Keep giving your daughter tummy time and chances are that once she's strong enough she'll find some way of getting around. Or maybe she'll skip crawling/scooting altogether and just start walking in a few months. Whatever happens, you don't need to worry, it's all normal.

my daughter is 11 months and not crawling or scooting yet. Our pediatrician referred us to Child Integrated Services, an early childhood intervention program, to get her evaluated around 6 months as she did not roll over at that age yet. We qualified to receive PT for her. She has been rolling over and achieved all other milestones just fine. Just not the crawling yet, but the PT exercises help to get her the feeling of it. I think it is the benefit of the state we live in that we receive this kind of care.Many do tell me, to not worry and she will get there, and my mom told me I walked before I crawled (at 13 months), and my cousin never crawled, went straight to walking. I hear you though, I am worried as a first time mom.If you are concerned, discuss it with your pediatrician.
