4 Different Baby Crawling Styles You May See Your Baby Do

When your baby hits the crawling stage, it is so much fun to watch him learn how to crawl, navigate the space with his new skill, and get around in creative ways. It can also be pretty funny to watch your baby learn how to crawl because they often do some pretty crazy things when crawling. Sometimes it can be pretty amazing to see their little bodies move the way they do! I find that most babies have a distinct crawl and will fit into one or more of four clear crawling styles. Does your baby’s crawl fit some of these styles?
