A lot of people keep telling me how essential crawling for babys (brain/language/physiological) development is and that our son will be prone to all sorts of disabilities, which sort of freaks me out, but what can I do? I never forced him to walk nor can I force him to crawl.
Eh, I wouldn't worry about it, I mean what if he crawled for a day, would that be better? I think it sounds great. I think we all have our own learning, it's just like the food thing, there are those who adamantly say if you give a baby food before 6 months they'll all be prone to a life of food issues, for my kids they'd have issues if I didn't give them food. They have both had massive appetites, they are just early eaters, gosh both had teeth before 6 months, lol, something must be up.
I wouldn't worry about it, lot's of kids don't crawl and it's not that uncommon.
