At first they just lie there, then at some point they turn. A few more months pass before they begin to crawl and are thus able to move around. After a while they push themselves onto their knees and crawl. After crawling, they pull themselves up using furniture and hands and eventually they walk.
Many parents think that this is the mandatory order for their first child, but this is not always the case. Even if this is the usual procedure, there are still serious deviations, both in the order and the timing.
Not every baby starts crawling at 8 months and walking at 12. Every child is different and, like everything else, has their own pace.
In general, one can say that the first born usually takes a little longer, while the subsequent ones are a little faster because they copy a lot from their siblings. But that doesn't always have to be the case.
Our big one, for example, was completely out of the ordinary: he only started crawling when he was about 8 months old. And he did that until he started walking at 17 months. He skipped the crawling altogether.
Our youngest, on the other hand, started pulling himself up everywhere at 10 months and didn't crawl until he was 11 months old. A month later it was already running.
And so all parents can certainly tell different stories, but this only leads us to one conclusion: no matter when and how your child starts crawling, creeping or walking. Don't worry about it because if your child is healthy, he or she will definitely walk at some point. Give it the time it needs and enjoy the somewhat quieter phase, because once it's running, you just have to be faster ;-)
