How do we define 'crawl'? DD only just started propping up an knees and hands and crawling but she smudged along for a while before that but I don't consider that to be crawling because her stomach was not off the ground.

My DD started crawling at 7 months but was sitting up by herself at 5 months. My DS started crawling at 5 months but hasn't yet sat up by himself. I assumed that my children's milestones would be similar to each other but it seems that I was wrong.

DD actually started crawling at 5mths 9days, and started sitting up a week later.

Wow, seems most babies are crawling 7-8 mths. I didn't realise they were all so early. I have 1 who has just about worked it out but another who is still pending. I'll vote again when she gets there.

DS first crawled at 6 months
DS at 9.5 months isn't really crawling yet...she is moving, but more on hands and feet rather than hands and knees!

Master A commando crawled at 4.5 months. Crawled properly up on hands and knees shortly after 5 months.

DS was shuffle crawling by 9 months corrected/12 months actual and there is now no stopping him! 3 months ago he wasn't even rolling, now he can pull himself up to hold on the sides of his playpen and "walk" around.

Oooo, just realised I can't vote twice. Clearly these polls are not made for mums with more than one baby. Number 2 got up and started crawling yesterday. 8.5 months.

DD1 crawled at 4 months - proper hands and knees co-ordinated crawling. She was fast. It kept me busy! She also was on her feet walking while holding on to furniture etc at 6 months. She couldn't sit til 6.5 months. Walked at 11.5 months.
DD2 is commando crawling and rocking on hands and knees at 5.5 months.

At 4 months she was on hands and knees swaying and sort of doing a shuffle. 5 months to the day she was born dd got up and took off. Now at 7.5 months she is so fast its scary.
