          Yeah.. all moms go through this phase including myself now.. Will be talking to more friends on this issue to help me out..

          But 2 yrs old.. academic based would be stressful. So young.. playing through learning is much more fun. Then won't scare him off learning..

                So, anyone game for a gathering? Can sit and chat, or, check out year-end sales. I haven't seen the newly-done Tangs

                I think I'd be ok to bring baby out to town or something as soon as next week

                    waaah, I wanna go!! (and I owe Davis a lunch for her generosity ) but I dont think I can bring baby out shopping cause if I do go out, I'll be slinging her, and I cant sling for long if I walk around (baby too heavy). When are you girls going? Maybe I can meet up you all for lunch or tea before/after your shopping?

                        Hi poem, I think my baby started crawling at about 7 .5 months old. But I read that from here most babies starts crawlin between 6 to 10 months, so no worries.

                        I find this Baby Developmental Milestone Chart pretty useful: http://www.babycenter.com/general/ba...ment/6476.html

                          Hi poem,

                          My baby started at 6.5 months but not the 4 legged crawl though. It's the 'soldier' crawl..

                          Like what momopeach said, crawling stage is from 6-10 months, so nothing to worry about. However, there are babies who skip the crawling stage all together and proceed to walking. Heard and read that crawling is good for child's future developments so it's advisable to encourage your baby to crawl for at least 2 months before walking.

                          Things u can do to help your baby to crawl is get rid of the baby walker ( i know it's really convenient but walker does slow them down in their milestones according to some reseaches), or cut back the time spent on walker.

                          Secondly, u can start crawling yourself for demo and encouragement purposes, that's what i did Seems more fun to them in a way seeing their mom is doing it and they will wanna copy too

                          And lastly, u can put a toy or food or something interesting in front of your baby for him/her to reach out and slowly, add the distance.

                          Hope this helps

                          p.s: my firstborn started 'walking' first before crawling (4 legged) at 10 months old

                            Yes! I read that some famous (but radical) school has their primary school age kids crawl around for half-hr before lessons start, to good results. Helps in left-right brain something, as well as body coordination. :huh:
                            I'm already trying to encourage the soldier crawl, first we started with her curled up on hubby's tummy (or mattress, we prefer hubby's tummy cos more comforting), then we progressed to putting her on the mattress and letting the soles of her feet press against our hands. She manages some sort of assisted soldier crawl for... a few inches?

                              Yup i read before that crawling helps in developmental in the future.
                              Really makes me stressed out when people asked me: So...can she crawl yet?
                              Hubby have been religiously conducting crawling lessons with her ....but she usually cries & fusses after 20 mins of "lesson".
                              Thank you for the tips & info gals.
                              Hopefully there will be some improvement!

                                I feel ya. For awhile, my mum was stressing me out too by comparing Mila with her friend's grandson who was suppossedly very advanced in everything for his age. As long as your baby is doing ok for his age group, then just don't bother what others said.
