Activity suggestions for parents with children aged 9-12 months, like how to encourage creeping and crawling in your baby.
Playing on the floor can often lead to creeping and crawling and is good practice for kids building muscle control and coordination. For many kids, creeping or moving forward while lying on the stomach is the prelude to crawling. You may see your child practice moving on his own by throwing a small toy forwards and then crawling or creeping towards it. Encourage your child to practice this and give him plenty of praise when he reaches the toy.
