8mo No interest in "moving" Nikki Hart 1 child; Portland, Indiana 308 posts

I know I post about this quite a bit but I can't kick it from my mind. My LO just turned 8 months today. She shows absolutly no interest in moving. No rolling, crawling, army crawl, nothing.She /can/ roll, she does it every once in awhile, just not regularly. She sits unsupported great, and will go onto her hands and knees, but she will just rock back and forth until she goes onto her belly or gets frustrated. Should I be concerned? Is there anything I can do to help her learn?

Neither of my LO's had much interest in rolling, so as long as they have the ability I dont think there is much to be concerned about. And with the crawling, just remember that every baby is different. She will learn it eventually. 8 months old is a normal age for babies to start learning how to crawl anyway.

The rocking means she'll be crawling soon!! My first son did that around the same time, within a month he was crawling faster than I'd ever seen a baby crawl lol
