Answer: The average age for crawling is 9 months, but many babies wait until later to crawl, or may skip this stage entirely.Some infants forgo crawling and proceed directly to pulling themselves up to standing, cruising on furniture, walking with some help, and finally, walking on their own.
Some tips to help: Give your baby plenty of tummy time, starting from birth. By playing on their bellies, babies develop the muscle strength in their shoulders, arms, back and trunk (torso) that helps them learn to crawl.
Encourage your baby to reach for the toys she is interested in. Lay interesting toys at just a short distance from your almost-crawler. See if she is able to move herself toward these objects.
Make sure your baby has space to explore that is safe and supervised.Now is the time to begin child-proofing your home. Take a walk through (or better yet, a crawl-through) your home and see what potential hazards may be at your baby’s level.
Place the palms of your hands behind your child’s feet when he is on all fours. This stabilizes him and gives him something to “push off” from when he is just learning to crawl.
