Hello Ladies, thanks so much for all the replies. I have been meaning to reply to the tread but been writing exams which have been keeping me otherwise engaged.

He is crawling!! So happy about that, still a bit sceptical about this whole crawling thing but he definately is crawling, started a week ago with just a couple of "steps" but have since done it more and more. We keep trying to motivate him to crawl so hoping he gets stronger at it.

Thanks again and have a great day ladies :)

Hi CarienM,

My DD only crawled at 13 months and walked at 16 months. We also stressed about her, but she did both when she was ready. Once she started walking she was strong and solid, hardly ever fell.

Our paed told us not to worry about if she wasn't walking by18 months. She is 100% normal, spoke fluently by 2 years. Don't compare your baba to others, you'll end up panicking bout nothing.

Don't worry!

Thanks Huggles, read the article and he definately is interested in moving around, he just isnt... I guess I will give him a little more time and see what he does, hopefully he comes around :)

Hi Carien

You might find this article interesting:
www.babycenter.com/0_developmental-miles...wling_6501.bc?page=1
Also read the very last paragraph on the second page, about when to be concerned. They reckon you have until at least 1 year, but even then it doesn't mean the child has to actually be crawling then, just showing interest in trying to move, which it sounds like your son is definitely doing already (if he can reach a toy that is deliberately placed out of his reach, he's moving).

Hello there, thanks so much for the reply, appreciate it.

I took him for his 6 month check up and the paed said she only needed to see him again at 18 months. I did think that I would call her office and just see what she says about him not crawling.

Thanks again for the feedback, appreciated :)

Hi Carien,

I can't give any advice from first hand experience as my case was the other way around (my LG crawled early, but then just didn't seem interested in walking at all), but I have heard that boys take longer than girls. In my LG's class at creche there was a little boy who didn't crawl, he just rolled over till he got where he wanted to go, and he seems perfectly fine now. Walking, talking, potty training, all fine. I also remember another little boy from my mommy-and-baby exercise class, who wasn't crawling at 11 months. Nothing wrong with him either, he was just a very calm, patient little boy, not easily frustrated.

When last did you go for a checkup at your pediatrician? That would be my first stop, rather than the occupational therapist. It may not be anything other than him being "lazy" to crawl, or it may be tied to something else (not necessarily physical). A paed would be better equipped to diagnose if there is a problem, and he can refer you to an OT if necessary.
