: Hi. Can anyone help? I have an 8 month old who's not crawling. It doesn't seem like he ever will if he doesn't play on his tummy, but he refuses. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I can get him to play on his tummy? Thanks

Hi Melissa, basically you have to let them go at there own pace. My son didn't start crawling until he was 11mos. and didn't start walking until over a year. He was advanced in verbal skills though.

He is now 3 1/2yrs. old and perfectly fine. He is where he should be in motor skills and in walking, running, etc.

Dont worry, he will start before you know it and you will regret wanting him to crawl! LOL!

Good luck
