My son will be 8 months tomorrow and still till today hates tummy time. He is sitting up alone but sometimes falls back so I keep pillows around him to be. I am afraid that bc of him hating tummy time, it will delay him from crawling/ walking




Should I be worried and is there anything I can do



Thanks
Christine

He is 5 mo and still isn't even pushing up on his arms with straight elbows yet.

Some babies don't crawl, they go straight to walking. :)

Dd was the same way, she hated it. And I was SO worried. Then she stood unassisted at 8 1/2 months, and then started crawling yesterday! She'll be nine months in a week! He'll get there!

my dd is almost thirteen months old she can sit up on her own and was rolling every where she wanted to go til this past saturday i was told that because she was large at birth and she continues to follow same path it will take her longer cuz she has more to move around she hated tummy time too they all do things in their own time

don't worry, i am still nervous about my son not crawling. But i've heard people say drs dont look at crawling as a milestone

My almost 7 month old is army crawling backwards but isn't sitting up without falling backwards. I was freaking out too because she wasn't sitting up but her pediatrician just said to keep working with her.
