My 9.5 mo DS has never liked tummy time. He cries and I pick him up. Flash forward to now - he still hates being on his tummy and has no interest in crawling. He has started cruising on the furniture and will walk if I hold his hand. I really wasn't that concerned until my MIL got really upset with me for not forcing him to crawl. She says he will be developmentally messed up by not learning to crawl first. Does anyone know about this? or have a babe that walked before crawling?? How can I force my baby to crawl? I dont want to leave him by himself in a room and let him "figure" it out like my MIL suggests! Advice Please!!!
