Maybe she is not ready to crawl yet.

DD didnt crawl until 10 months and DS started at 8 months.  All kids are different - 6 months is really young to crawl.

My DD didnt properly craw till 11 months....enjoy the fact you dont need to chase her.
Every child is different, she will do it in her own time!

All my kids didn't 4pt crawl until 11.5m.

DS1 and DS2 were CC from 6-7m. DD didn't do that stage, she just sat until 11.5m and 4pt crawled.

Perfectly normal wink.gif

Oh yeah, some kids don't 4pt crawl either.

6m is on the early side to 4pt crawl too wink.gif

They are all so different.

DD1 was almost 11 months when she finally crawled. She hardly even rolled until 9 months!
DD2 was crawling at 9 months.

Both girls walked at 13 months.

DS didn't 'normal' crawl until long after he started walking.

DD didn't crawl until about 1 year. She bum shuffled at around 10 months.

My DD2 started commando crawling at 8 mths & was still doing it at 12 mths (no four points EVER) so at her 12 mth check at the baby clinic they suggested assessment by a physio. Due to feeding issues as well, she was diagnosed with mild hypotonia (low muscle tone). But even after lots of physio sessions, she still didn't 4 point crawl until a month before she started walking at 18 mths.

OP I would give it some more time & then see whether some physio might be beneficial.

Neither of my boys have 'normal' crawled at all. Both bottom shuffled - DS1 in one style from 8 months, DS2 in a different style from 7 months.

She can get around and is happy so I would say she is fine.

DS didn't crawl until after 10 months - he just rolled everywhere.  He was walking by 13 months.  My nephew crawled much earlier at 8 months but is still not walking at 14 months.  They're all different.  I wouldn't worry at all.

DS only started commando crawling at 9 months and hands and knees crawling around 10 months. I think your DD is well within the normal range. I can't really understand why it's driving you batty though shrug.gif it's not like she's not crawling on purpose.

Pat did this, then at about 11/12 months he started  crawling properly, and was walking by 14 months...

My DD2 didnt normal crawl until 10 months and didnt walk until 16 months.

All babies are different. The older 2 crawled by 8 months.

#14 Princess.cranky.pants

DD1 crawled at 9 months, DD2 13 months and DD3 12 months.

6 months is very early for crawling. None of mine were even sitting up independently then!

Your DD is doing what's normal for her age . Most babies are not proper crawling at 8 months.
Don't know why it's driving you nuts though.. you can't make them crawl, they will do it when they are ready.

I wouldn't worry. My DS started commando crawling at 6.5months and didn't start crawling on all 4s til 10 months.

Both of my kids rolled really early, then commando crawled from spot on 6 months. My DD didn't crawl properly until ten months and then walked at 15 months. My DS is currently 10 months and isn't crawling properly yet, although he seems close. I definitely wouldn't be worrying too much, my kids have been fine.

It's normal.  Plenty of bubs don't proper crawl till closer to one.
My DS started commando crawling at 8.5 months and proper crawling at 10.5 months.

#18 Lifesgood

Posted 20 March 2012 - 08:43 PM

I was coming in to say DD didn't proper crawl until 10 months and DS until 11 months, but I see many PPs have already made the point!

#19 Guest_Hoggle_*

Posted 20 March 2012 - 10:06 PM

DS started commando crawling at 7.5 months and kept doing it until s couple of weeks before he started walking at 13 months

DD2 started at 6 months, started properly crawling 9-10 months

Mine hasn't ever commando crawled, just 4 point crawling. They're all so very different original.gif

#21 Lokum

DS commando crawled from 7 months, 4-pt crawled around 11.5 months, and walked at 16 months.

At 20 months, he's amazing. Literally climbing trees, walking balance beams, running across suspension bridges, two-feet jumping on bouncy castles.

He didn't rush, but he sure got there.

I had the same issue with my DS.  I actually ended up getting my chiro to have a look at him (she is paed qualified) and she said he was missing a hip reflex and was very stiff through the hips.  She has been working on him for about 3 weeks and he is now getting up on all fours quite frequently (though still going back on his belly to crawl) and doing the rocking on all fours thing... so after 3 months of commando crawling I feel as though she is doing something that works

#23 TotesFeral

huh.gif
Since when was commando crawling not normal?
DD commando crawled until around 11 months when she started to crawl on all fours.
Stop forcing her to do something she is obviously not ready to do!

Two of my kids commado crawled at 7.5 months then normal crawl just after 9 months. They got super fast and efficient at the commando crawling too. OP it sounds totally normal.

My dd didn't ever crawl 'properly'. She started commando crawling at 11 months so pretty late by most peoples standards.
