You can help baby support his middle in the beginning if he's already begun to lunge forward to get on all fours. Placing a toy or mirror just out of baby's reach might encourage him to begin to try to crawl. Trying to get him to come to you might help too.

If you crawl along side baby, he might think it's a game and try to mimic you!


You don't have to worry about 'teaching' a baby to crawl -- they actually start to do it little by little on their own in their own time.
