Stages of Crawling (Newbie to Pro in 1 Min)

Stages of Crawling - A funny and educational video by

At what age do babies start crawling? Well, as you’ll see in this funny and educational video, it depends. Does slithering across the carpet constitute crawling? Does the wounded solder count? Or is the elevated speed crawl the only answer?

Here’s Griffin from six and a half to eight and a half months going through all the crawling milestones and stages.

Consider sharing this video if any of these stages look familiar!

    Adorable, but I do wish you would rename the “wounded soldier” one. I am married to a Wounded Warrior and I don’t think it’s very funny. I mean no disrespect, and I know you don’t mean to offend and you can’t please everyone, but I just had to say something. Very cute video nonetheless.

    Adorable! My little ones didn’t go through this many stages! My youngest now learned to scoot forward in her crib before she learned to roll over! She’s still working in the other stages! I used to watch a little girl who did, what I affectionately call, the bear crawl! She crawledon her hands and feet with her butt high up in the air! I really saw her on her knees! It was adorable, especially when she got going really fast!

    I’m not sure when i started to crawl, but my mum told me that i took my first steps at 9 3/4 months. Im 13, 14 in Sept and i love sprinting! Like i have represented my local area and i don’t train and stuff. I wonder if that’s the reason i can run fast because neither of my parents were very fast. Anyways, when did Griffin first walk? He has the cutest smile by the way! :)

      Thanks Sophie! And I’m so impressed that you sprint! I could only do distance running :)

      Griff started walking at about 11 months and hasn’t stopped since…

    Sharing some conversation from my YouTube channel.

    I loved the wounded soilder too! tehehehe he is preacious .

    @latitiko He, he, me too :). XO.

    Very very cute!! You just made my day, thank you… i was pretty down today and watching your lil one make me giggle and smile.

    @sakurarose89 Aw, thanks so much. Sorry to hear you were feeling blue. Next time you are down, check out our video with baby laughing hysterically in bath tub. If I do say so myself, it’s super cute and definitely creates a smile :).

    I know. You’re right! We all have to go through it but it’s scary. =)

    I’m so afraid of the floor with my lil one =\. He’s 6 & 1/2 months.

    @CooKieChiKy I know. It’s hard. You can always buy a helmet. But the bruises and bumps are part of it. We can be as careful and watchful as we can but it’s part of the process.

    Ouch. His head hit the floor hard. =-

    That just made my day – LOVE it

    With my first son (now 2) he got to go through all these stages. With my daughter (now 9 months) she went from rolling over to inch worm (in about a month). From inch worm to full out crawling in FOUR DAYS! So glad you got to experience this with your son, it fasinates me that my daughter has someone to catch up to – her big brother is very fast. I wish she would have gone through these stages but she has to beat her brother, or try. Great video. Love yours always! hes a super kid and thumbs up

    SO SO CUTE! He is so adorable! What a creative video! LOVED IT! Thumbs up!

    Lol. The Faceplant was too cute!!

    Aw! Its so cool how you captured his crawling progress! He’s Too cute!

    I love crawling babies, I will be almost sad when my boy perfects walking. Your little guy is a handsome little devil!

    i don’t know why but i laughed so hard at the wounded soilder one, lol.
    your little guy’s awesome.

    @MamaNaturalBlog I think you might have the cutest baby ever =)

    aw i cant wait until my baby starts doing this. Griffin is too cute!

    Aww, Griffin is such a cutie!

    how cute! my little man is still doing the face plant :/ and he’s about 7.5 months.
