Just wondering about walking and crawling... At what age would you seek help if your child wasn't walking or crawling (only does commando)?

Subbing. Ds is ten months. Commandos quite well but hasn't crawled proper yet. Regularly gets on his hands and knees and rocks though.

I would say somewhere between 12 and 18 months. Dd2 didn't walk until a week shy of 12 months. It's also my understanding that commando is still a form of crawling.

I would be concerned earlier but would wait until 16-18mths to follow up

Ok so 15 months and no proper crawling isn't really great? Is the first action to go to GP?

We had lots of physio in DD's first 12 months, and method of crawling wasn't a big concern - bum shuffling, sliding etc, all were OK. Can he/she get in to an all fours position even if they don't move in it? And move around the room/house fine in whatever fashion?
For walking, we were told only a concern if over 18 months and not walking.

We took ds to the mchn for other reasons the other day and she wants us to come back when he is 16 months old corrected (prem) if he's still not walking.
She said it's better to get onto it early rather then wait till 18 months.

I'd actually get a physio review now as they would likely be able to give you some play and positioning advice to encourage more movement.
There's usually a waiting list for public services so best to get a referral asap. Or you can go private and get the gp to fill out a form so you get a Medicare rebate for some sessions.

My third did not crawl until 12.5 months. I did not seek any help as I could tell she was just a late crawler. She walked at 16 months. She's a perfectly normal, healthy 19 month old now.
