My son is 10 months and not crawling. He drags himself to where he wants to go. He loves to stand and has incredible balance. He can also go from belly to sitting. He pulls up on everything. I honestly think he is going to skip crawling altogether. How old is your baby?
Im not sure if it affects there balance or not one of my little cousins didnt crawl at all he just walked
and two other of my little cousins who are brothers didnt crawl until they were old I remember at one point they had to hire a physical therapist because they didnt know if he would ever be able to walk and now both of them are fine.
..My son is 5 months and he wants to lay on his stomach ...But when he trys to crawl he gets angry at himself and crys so I have to pick him up...I heard that also about their balance ...But I hope its not true....Or im in big trouble...Because I doubt my son will ever crawl either....
The less you pick them up,the more they will crawl.My older sisters baby is held all the time.He is 1 yr and 2 months old and is starting to walk.My little sisters baby is picked up way less and he started walking when he was about 10 moths old.
