    Many parents wish to see their baby crawl and no doubt it is one of the major milestones for a baby. The child automatically masters how to balance on his knees and hands, later he will move forward and backward by pushing with his knees. Crawling is a baby's first experience with independent movement. It strengthens their neck, link and trunk muscles and prepares the child’s body for walking.

It ensures that arm, leg, and back muscles are strong enough to keep them strong, stable and upright. But crawling does more than just strengthen their body. Crawling actually strengthens their brain and is their first step toward future learning.

Babies crawl between the ages of 6 and 10 months and many babies start crawling in their first anniversary. They start rolling across the room, slithering on his stomach. In some cases, they skip crawling and move directly to standing up. Very soon, the child will start on foot. When a child crawls, it means they launch doing things to amuse themselves

When a child has a good head control, they start crawling. In such cases, the parent should help the child to learn the skill. Parents should make more things comfortable for them to crawl. The house should be dirt free, for they will roam in all corners.

You will find great difference and fun, when the kid is on the carpet. Make sure the child’s elbow touches the carpet and is not hanging in the air. Position the elbow. Gently hold the elbow and draw them towards your body. At this stage, the child wants to lie on his elbow. Persist doing it repeatedly.

The other way get down on the floor directly in front of the child and face her. Let her look while you talk, and encourage her to follow your demonstrations. At this stage, he/she endures longer sessions, on her tummy. Very soon the child is ready to crawl.

Your child spontaneously learns to crawl and all they need is just an extra help. Some child instead of moving forward, they keep spinning in circles. They kick the air rather than pushing against the ground. To help them along, try holding your hand behind his feet or hold rolled-up towel behind his feet, so that he scoots with something. You will enjoy lots of fun, while he slides across the ground.

Babies learn crawling in a wide range of periods. Entice your baby to get from place to place by putting toys or any other attractive objects just beyond its reach. This is one among the best way to encourage your child to crawl.

Crawling strengthens the muscles in preparation for walking. The muscles should be strong enough to keep the child from falling on the ground. Once your baby is on the move, see that you make a thorough care that the child is safe.
