Parents’ Guide to Crawling



There are two types of crawling: army crawl and creeping. Army crawl is where baby’s stomach remains on the floor; while creeping is when baby pushes up to hands and knees with their belly off of the floor. Are you worried that your baby isn’t hitting this 7-9 month milestone? Here are some activities you can do to get baby crawling:

1. Use Tummy Time often
2. Position toys out of reach
3. Teach baby to rock on hands and knees
4. Encourage crawling to their favorite toy

Pathways.org provides FREE tools to maximize all children’s motor, sensory, and communication development.

Use Pathways.org resources to track baby’s milestones and help identify potential early communication delays. Visit https://pathways.org/growth-development/7-9-months/milestones/ to see all 7-9 month milestones. If you notice your baby is not meeting their 7-9 months motor milestones, contact their health care provider.
