CS - please help
Hi Doc,

My baby(almost 9 months) is not interested in crawling at all, he likes standing and walking around (by support of course)

People keep on telling me it will affect him emotionally when he is older. Is this true?

Thank you

Crawling is common, but not compulsory. And if he's happy standing and walking with support, he's fairly advanced, and showing no signs of serious problems.
