DS2 is 6.5 months and has been army crawling for the last 3ish weeks. He does get up on hands and knees (or sometimes hands and feet) and rocks, but goes back down to his tummy when he wants to get moving.
Just wondering for others with army crawling bubs - if they eventually crawled properly or army crawled until they walked?

You mean commando crawling??? Mine DS did it and never crawled properly. Went straight to walking.

Is it called commando crawling? He's pulling himself along with his arms and his tummy dragging along the ground, instead of the conventional on hands and knees. Does that make sense?

DS started commando crawling at 6.5mths, proper crawling at 9.5mths, and has just started walking (almost 12mths).
I thought he might crawl earlier than he did but I think he didn't bother as he could already get around!

One of my nephews only ever army/commando (call it what you like) crawled, another ended up doing it the "normal" way. I was told by mchn as long as they crawl one way or the other it doesn't matter.
If you want to encourage the "normal" crawling you could try crawling in front of him and he may decide to copy.

My younger brother only ever did the commando crawl then went to walking. My DD has started with the commando crawl and has just recently (the past few days) started to crawl properly. She does both for now but I am sure the commando crawl will be replaced eventually. I have noticed that she wont usually crawl properly if I have socks on her as we have polished wooden floors and she cant get the grip. She crawls best in the nude.

My DD commando crawls but I thought that was due to her erb's palsy (birth injury affecting her right arm). She gets up on all fours and sometimes takes a couple of 'steps' but then gets down and commando crawls
she's furniture walking now and walking tentatively behind her walker toy
