Any tips for convincing a baby to crawl before walking? Our 6mo keeps trying to push to stand, and her version of a crawl right now is to push up to her feet and frog hop forwards, but the doc said she needs to crawl first for proper hip development

I know many that skipped the crawling stage completely and did just fine. If she’s ready to walk, let her walk

My husband (as a baby lol) never crawled, just basically went straight to walking. No issues. Think this is fairly common and nothing to worry about. Let her do her thing!

Just came here to say there is no convincing a baby or toddler! There is some sort negotiation with toddler which often fail but other than they rule and you follow. Sorry, I know I am not helping you with the answer you seek but my brain is fried currently after a haggle match with my 16 mo and remote!

Need to get each side of the body working independently rather than baby’s brain thinking that both sides fire at once - bicycles on the back, shifting weight from one side to the other while supported standing, etc.

If you can afford it, a well-recommended pediatric PT could be a great idea!

She's got that part down - give her the tiniest bit of support and she starts walking forward

Ok this is all making me feel a lot less stressed about needing to manage her movement. Thanks everyone.

let your little scientist figure out their body in their own way, in their own time. both my kids took different paths (one skipped crawling and cruised for months before walking, one crawled and didn’t pull up to stand until 11mo but was full on walking just after pulling up). they both now walk and crawl the same. if you want to raise problem solvers, strategists, scientists, creators…let your kids discover the world and, hard as it is, get out of their way while they do it! :)

Agree don’t worry about it. Take to a PT if you want specific guidance

I never crawled or even rolled over as a baby. Went straight to walk at 8 months don’t see I am any different from my siblings , cousins etc

@milestones.and.motherhood

She has a highlight on this

My aunt was 6 months old when she started walking and it didn't cause any issues for her. She's 50 now.

Your aunt is a boss

My agency has officially switched to remote working. We can use the office as needed if we want, for a place to work or meet, will monitor the offices use for the next several months to see if we even still need an office of that size. I don’t even know why to do with myself now, ha. I like dressing up — I normally wore heels every day. I’ve been in joggers & leggings everyday for wfh -- is that me now?

Hey all, has anyone felt this way?

I'm back at this job I freelanced at. I did well which is why they brought me back but I feel braindead. Sorry if that's not PC but I don't know how else to describe it!

If someone doesn't give me exact instructions then I don't know what to do next no matter how simple the task is. In meetings I feel vague like I have nothing to add. I can tell people are starting to see I'm a bit lost. I would ask for help but don't even know what I need to know.
