DS is a happy healthy baby who has been breastfed since birth. I work at home and have always been his primary caretaker. It was the same scenario for DD who is now 4, and she was scooting around by 7-8 months and properly crawling by 9. But DS shows absolutely no interest in being mobile whatsoever. He also sat up late as well, around 8 months (and still has a hard time not tipping over.) He likes being on his tummy and can roll forwards and backwards, but has never tried to scoot himself. If I sit him down and put a toy just out of his reach, he'll either give up or tip over trying to grab it. At our last pedi visit a couple weeks ago the doc said something like "every baby is different, give him time" but now I'm really starting to worry. Anyone else have a baby who doesn't or didn't move around at 9 months? Should I be worried? My mom keeps telling me that babies who never crawl are likely to have developmental problems later....
