Babies Aged 9 Months Cannot Crawl But Can Walk?
,, I want to ask my child who has entered the age of 9 months and my child has not crawled yet, but is sliding backwards, and is already standing about to take a walk, is that good for the development of the baby?
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Logically, a baby should be able to sit first, then crawl, stand, walk and then run. But in reality, this crawling stage does not have to be present in every baby. This can happen because the baby spends most of his time being carried to move from one place to another, or using a chair or baby toy that helps him stand up.
This condition occurs widely in babies all over the world, and although there has been an opinion that this condition can be dangerous for the baby in the future, makes it less balance, unable to stand upright, even has problems in school, but actually not the case. Babies who skip the crawling phase can still grow and develop without any problems and are just like other children who used to crawl. But of course if your child doesn't crawl because his limbs are weak or you see something stiffening his movement, you should get him checked by a doctor.
Then for dental problems, teeth usually appear at the age of about 6 months, but teeth can appear at any time from the age of 3-12 months, so you don't need to worry. Below is an illustration of the range of appearance of each tooth in babies.
If you still have doubts, get your child checked by a pediatrician to avoid unwanted things. So, hopefully it answers your question.
