Watching your cute little baby grow up is something that cannot be described in concrete words. It’s a process that’s encompasses every emotion that is under the sun. A parent can expect a somewhat predictable schedule of milestones. For example, babies will try to sit after a certain age. After that, they gradually try to stand up. When they cannot stand properly, they start crawling or rolling over. Although this process is adorable and entertaining to watch, parents need to be watchful and cautious. When your baby starts crawling, you should keep a precise eye on your baby. Crawling opens a door to all sorts of potential accidents, if parents are not paying attention.
Development of Babies
Every human being undergoes the process of growth from baby to adult. For human growth, some common traits are noted. There could be some differences, but for the most part we are all the same. Learning to crawl is such a stage, which all babies undergo. With that said, when do babies crawl? Some babies start crawling early, while some babies start crawling later. Crawling is a tough job for babies. To do this, they need a healthy state of mind as well as body.
Research says that babies who suffer from malnutrition, learn to crawl late. Some experts also say that rolling is the first stage of crawling. First your baby will learn how to roll, and when they gain confidence as well as seamlessness in rolling, they will start to attempt crawling. After the crawling stage, babies try to stand and then walk independently. The crawling stage varies from one baby to another. Some babies go from crawling to standing after a long time gap. On the other hand, some babies crawl for a short period of time. They simply opt for standing and walking independently instead of crawling.
Things to Expect When Crawling Begins
Parents should be prepared to closely watch as their babies roll, crawl and stand gradually. In fact, parents need to support babies in doing such activities. All these signs signify healthy nutrition, good physical health and positive mental health. Generally, it takes 6 to 10 months for babies to learn crawling. Some may skip crawling phase and move directly into the walking, cruising and pulling up phases.
When babies start crawling, it signifies that soon they would start standing and walking. They generally crawl to the dead end walls and then take wall support to stand. Parents can assist with this. It is equally important to know why babies roll over. Babies roll over for many reasons. In fact, rolling is considered a first stage of crawling. When a baby rolls, you can be sure that your baby will start crawling soon. Parents should keep babies under close watch when they find babies roll or crawl or walk. Keeping eyes on them will help protect babies from accidents.
