*Mommy Question* Ok, so Jordyn was a preemie born @ 32 weeks weighed 3lbs so of course she's behind in weight she's 6months & 12lbs right now but will that have anything to do with her crawling like will it take her longer than an average baby bc she's so small ??? Oh yeah im in no rush for her to start crawling just wanna know lol
My preemie is 10 1/2 months 9 months adjusted and isn't crawling. She was a 34 weeker. She is in PT through early intervention to help her with crawling. Preemies want to extend their legs. They don't want to flex their muscles as much and obviously in order to crawl the legs need to be flexed. So we mostly are working on flexing her legs and getting her comfortable so we can work more toward her crawling.
Preemies all do things at their own pace, just be patient and loving!

my son has low muscle tone so he has been doing this one sided army crawl and is receiving PT to help learn how to crawl on all fours.
