Crawling to walking Rolling over is the start of learning to crawl. Babies will go from rolling, to rocking on all fours, to crawling
Developmental Milestones: Crawling Crawling helps your baby strengthen her muscles enough to walk and is her first way of getting around efficiently on her own. In the traditional crawl, she'll first learn to balance on her hands and knees. Then she'll figure out how to move forward and backward from this posture by pushing off with her knees.
The Nature of Children's Play - Crawling In what Piaget (1962) aptly described as sensorimotor practice play, infants and toddlers experiment with bodily sensation and motor movements, and with objects and people. By 6 months of age, infants have developed simple but consistent action schemes through trial and error and much practice. Infants use action schemes, such as pushing and grasping, to make interesting things happen.
