Should my 10 month old be crawling?


Questioner: Justin M.

Subject: crawling

Question: Hi, my daughter has started scooting. she is 44 weeks old and I was wondering and thinking that she should be crawling. I was just wondering if this is normal a few articles I have read said she should be walking.

Answer: Dear Justin:

Your daughter is about 10 months old and all children develop at different points in their individual lives. This is a something to be aware of now as she may continue to develop on her own timeline from now until she becomes an adult. The thing you read about children are generalized.

However, I always encourage parents with concerns to ask their pediatrician. If they say everything is fine then please do just enjoy her as she will not be little for long.

Best Wishes!
