Board-certified and expert orthopedic hand and upper extremity surgery, Dr. Erin Nance, speaks to Romper about Why Do Babies Army Crawl?

She is quoted saying:

 “Army crawling is generally seen when a baby’s upper body strength and coordination is more advanced than the lower body, which is usually the case when infants are first learning how to propel themselves forward,” Dr. Erin Nance “It is a natural progression from practicing tummy time and lifting up their heads.” For many babies, army crawling is a time of transition to when they can begin crawling on their hands and knees.

“They are just normal attempts at babies learning to progress from sitting upright at about 6 months to learning how to walk around 12 months,” says Dr. Nance.
