My Baby Scoots Instead Of Crawling
Is it normal for babies to skip milestones? My 7mo is army crawling but just started pulling up on things. Seems he should have mastered crawling 1st.

My son is 8 weeks old, when do babies start crawling? I've been working on it with him during tummy time but he can't pick himself up with his arms.
Keep up the : tummy time. At 2 mos. he'll regard his fists & get his head up to regard & follow a red or yellow toy dangled in front of him. At 4 mos., he'll get his head & chest up. By 5 mos. he'll be able to bear weight on his forearms, shifting from one to the other to reach for & attain objects. Cat-crawling is variable if it happens at all. It used to be ~ 6 mos., now ~ 7-8 mos. since " back to sleep". ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

They may never: Crawling ends up the least important milestone for a baby. An infant with chromosomal defect usually has low muscle tone and will be delayed in sitting and walking.

They will progress their way - with appropriate help. ...Read more

?your kidding right?: The physique of a healthy baby is a bit different from a healthy toddler /kid/adult.They have lax muscles that allow a full saggy belly & seem a bit pudgy with soft rolls. That said, there are also fat babies & they are not healthy. You grow new fat cells in infancy/puberty and pregnancy & an overfed fat baby is likely to face a lifetime of avoidable health problems. Your dr can define the limits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Unfortunately NO: Breastmilk is nature's perfect food for babies; formula is not nearly as good. Breastfed babies have better immune function (less infections), less chance of dying in their first year, lower risk of allergies, Type 1 diabetes and obesity and better cognitive development.
