Your baby will probably start crawling soon after they're able to sit well without support (probably around six or seven months old). They will gradually learn to move confidently from a sitting position to being on all fours, and they'll soon realize they can rock back and forth when their limbs are straight and their body is parallel to the floor.
Somewhere around the age of nine or ten months, they’ll figure out that pushing off with their knees gives them just the boost they need to get up and go.
As your baby starts to move around, make sure your home is childproofed. A crawling baby can get into a lot of mischief! Also, as your baby uses their hands and legs to move along the floor, they’re much more likely to get dirty, their skin may get dry, and they can become more prone to nicks and cuts.
For a quick and easy way to keep your little crawler clean, try our unfragranced JOHNOSN’S® baby skincare wipes. The hypoallergenic formula means they’re gentle enough to use whenever your baby gets a bit grubby.
To keep your baby's skin soft, moisturised and protected from dryness you might also like to try a gentle moisturiser such as JOHNSON’S® baby Lotion.
