My DD crawled at 10.5 months and walked at 16 months - at 9, she's been champion girl in sports since year one and she's bright as a button so I think you're MCHN is talking out of her bottom.

My son crawled at 9 months. Walked at 18months.
Daughter started commando crawling today, she's 8 months old.
Don't let the nurse get to you, I bet if you spoke to another she would say something different. Everyone has their opinions.
Babies develop at there own time.
For helping to crawl, just put something bub likes a bit further awY and see how you go. Don't stress.

Dd crawled late at 11 months but walked within normal time frame at 13 months. Is almost an adult now and is very bright and very sporty and was most certainly not delayed in anyway by her later crawling.
Ds1 crawled 6 months and walked at 7 months so both very early. Was delayed in other ways speech/ social and has ASD
Ds2 crawled 9 moths walked 18 months. So very delayed walking. Was delayed in other areas like speech toileting etc but is now 7 has easily caught up and is at the top of his class.
Ds3 crawled at 8 months walked at 10/11 months so pretty much bang on average. Again is somewhat delayed in speech social and toileting and is still a bit too young to compare against his peers to see if he is caught up.
I don't think delays in one area impact others, I think they are all just different and generally all end up caught up to same level by school age.

DD started commando crawling at 7 months, proper crawling at 8 months and walking at 14 months. She was cruising though from around 11 months.
I personally hope DS is a late crawler and walker. Once they have their legs there's no stopping them!!

All 4 of my girls were late crawlers. Crawled between 9-10 months and up walking by 12 months. They have all hit every other milestone on time or earlier.
