    Default 17 months old and not walking or crawling

    My son is only pushing himself along the floor on his back as a means of getting around. He screams when I try putting him in the crawling position. He is able to sit alone and stands for short periods of time against furniture. I have been taking him to physiotherapy but I don't think it is helping. Are any mums or dads out there in the same or similar boat?

    Not walking at 17months isn't an issue, some children take until 2 years but not crawling may be an issue. Have you taken him to a paed? I'd suggest getting an appointment with one if you haven't already.

    Definitely see a pead. How is he with his other milestones?

    Do you still see your health nurse? What does she say?

    The not crawling sounds like more of a concern than the not walking. I think a trip to the pead is a good idea.

    Good luck!

    Dd1 didn't crawl just bottom shuffled everywhere till nearly 15 months. She walked at 18 months. Was your baby born premmie? Get assessed by a paed. It might not be anything but better get checked.

    As above, our boy has just figured out how to crawl on all fours at 15 months. Before that he got around on his tummy pushing with one leg. I wouldn't worry about not walking at this age just yet, but do have a professional check him over if you are worried.
