Every little achievement of your baby makes you happy and proud, as most of parents do. The next milestone which comes after your baby’s sitting up is the crawling. Generally speaking, babies will take their first steps after they are good at crawling. When do they begin to crawl? It’s been said that most of the babies start to crawl as they are 7 months old. However, there are some babies who wouldn’t crawl until they are 10 months old. Moreover, it’s surprised that a few babies skip the crawling and take their first steps. In view of that, there is no need to worry about why your baby still not crawls.
Once your baby starts to crawl, there are things that you need to pay attention to.
As creating a comfortable place for your baby to crawl, there are many things you need to prepare in advance. The spacious space for your baby to crawl is inevitable, and you need to make sure the space is clean enough. In case your baby would hurt his knees while crawling, you should prepare the baby kid cotton knee pad or the carpet which is soft to touch and clean.
To encourage your baby to crawl is one of the must-dos. By and large, babies are sensitive with the plush toys which have contrasting colors, and the rattle one is better due to the attractive sound.
Those toys can be not only the attraction but also the obstacles in your baby’s way. It’s great to set the obstacles for your baby, which encourages him to find out the way to cross the toys. Since most of the plastic toys have sharp edges that might hurt your baby, I won’t suggest these kinds of toys for you.
Although crawling is important to your baby, you should let him take a break regularly anyway. And crawling happily would be the most important thing.
