Walking: From Crawling to Baby Steps

Crawling

Once your little one gets up on all fours, she may spend a while rocking back and forth before she figures out how to push off and propel herself forward. Since many babies this age have better-developed arms than legs, she may actually push herself backward the first few times she tries this. Encourage her to practice by placing a favorite toy just out of reach or sitting a few feet away and calling to her. Your excited reaction when she succeeds will only make her more eager to experiment.
