#MilestoneMonday / Crawling

crawl postCrawling is a milestone that babies typically learn between the ages of 7 and 9 months. As with any milestone, there is variability around when infants master this skill. Nonetheless, crawling is a tremendously important gross motor skill to learn because it gives your child a means of transportation to continue their interaction with their environment. This is also a very significant strengthening opportunity because the child will be bearing significant weight on their hands. Thus, this is facilitating hand strength, which builds the foundation for in-hand and fine motor skills.
