How to make baby crawl?

A baby will figure out how to crawl on their own; I know Lucas did. Lots of tummy time is very helpful! They will learn to push up to their hands and knees eventually while on their tummy! If they are already doing this and just staying still or rocking, then use motivation! Put their favorite toy or yourself in front of them as incentive to move forward. Lucas loved to go after toys, but not all the time. Babies teach themselves how to crawl pretty well. :)

How did your babies do with crawling? :)

    Lots of tummy time and toys did it for my oldest two. I also found that they began crawling as I was trying to clean in another room. I had to rush back in with the video camera/phone. If you worry about milestones just remember every child is different.

      I think my oldest crawled for a little bit. The others went from sitting to walking! My older daughter was funny. She could stand and walk while holding onto something before she could sit! They're all different!

        My son is doing a military crawl right now, but he is trying to push his knees under him...I is so cute. Great tips!
        I lay in front of him and cheer him on.
