Answer: Every child has a different growth curve. Few achieve their milestones before whereas few reach there a little late. Once your baby will be confidently start sitting , crawling will come naturally. Meanwhile you can help your baby to sit and crawl by giving him ample of floor time. Don't keep your baby snuggled up in rockers, chairs, stroller etc for long hours, this way he ll be more dependant on them rather than on himself. Keep objects/toys a little further from his reach , this exercise encourages baby to move towards them and eventually they figure out crawling. Also being at floor hus muscle will strengthen, the more he ll use his limbs more stronger he ll be getting. Many a time baby is apprehensive of moving as he doesn't know what he is supposed to do or because he falls. Whenever he falls gently pick him up kiss and hug and let me do it again. Don't scare baby by shouting or making fuss if his falling. Let him explore on his own. Make him sit with support for longer hours. Soon he ll be happily crawling.
