attempting to crawl

August 4, 2006

You have to crawl before you can walk (according to the experts it’s really important…). Here are some of the stages to go through before crawling is attained:

– learn to lie on tummy (not as easy as it sounds, can take several months)
– learn to roll over from tummy to back, then back to tummy
– learn to roll all over the floor to get to things
– learn to push self backwards on hands – crawling backwards can be a bit disconcerting when the toy you are trying to reach keeps getting further away
– learn to stick bottom in the air
– learn to rotate self around to face different directions
– learn to balance on hands and knees and rock back and forth
– learn to push self forwards with feet and knees, lurch and land on head
