9 month not crawling: motor functions damaged?

User Profile
My 9 month old daughter isnt crawling at all, isnt walking, wont pull herself up on anything, and every time i put her on her tummy she rolls right over to her back and than cant move. She still is completly immobile. Should I be concerned?? She isnt overweight, she weighs 21 lbs, and she is 26 inches, all the other children her age are about walking, and she cant even scoot.

Most babies start to walk at the age of 12 months. At 9-10 months, your baby should manage to stand on his feet. But every baby’s development is individual and there are always variations in development. Nonetheless, it will help to bring your daughter to a pediatrician to test his motor functions.
