When a child begins to crawl on his stomach, in a plastun fashion and on all fours
Often parents want their kid to quickly grow up – turned over, sat down, crawled, stood up and finally went. However, is it worth considering as a matter of pride the fact that the child began to walk independently for six months already?
The need for the crawl phase
In modern pediatrics it is believed that skipping the stage of crawling is extremely undesirable for children, because uprightness creates a strong strain on the baby’s spine. When crawling, the muscles of the back are actively being developed, which are responsible for keeping the spine in an upright position.
In addition, when a child begins to crawl, at the same time he develops his thinking, since a harmonious alternation of hands and feet will require complex brain work.
The child begins to creep
After three months, when the baby begins to turn over, his review seriously expands, he begins to see a lot of fascinating objects, which in the position on the back were invisible. Then he makes his first attempts to reach the toys, and a little later and crawl to them on his stomach. When the baby already has 6 months, his parents are increasingly interested in the question of how much the child starts to crawl for real.
