Are you worried baby isn’t crawling? Here are some tips to help with this 7-9 month milestone.

There are two types of crawling: army crawl, baby’s stomach remains on the floor; and creeping, baby pushes up to hands and knees with belly off the floor.

These are some activities you can do to get baby crawling:

  1. Use Tummy Time often
  2. Place toys around baby so they can pivot
  3. Do baby push-ups
  4. Teach baby to rock on hands and knees
  5. Position toys out of reach
  6. Encourage crawling to their favorite toy

Help baby gain the skills to crawl!
