10 Ways to Help a Frustrated Baby Learn to Crawl08:30
Ivy desperately wants to crawl, she is constantly on her tummy shouting and crying in frustration because she can't get anywhere. Well, she can actually wiggle her way quite far backwards, but she doesn't seem to notice that she's actually moving, so we need to get this baby crawling to cheer her up! (Then once we've got her crawling it will be time to think about learning to walk!)
8. Pull along on a blanket - Ivy loves a magic carpet ride! I put her on her tummy on the blanket, and pull her around the room. She's not actually working on her crawling skills, but it does give her the sensation of moving around and it gives her the opportunity to see parts of the room that she doesn't usually get into.
We've been doing all of these for about a week now, and Ivy is making definite progress. She is still mostly moving backwards, but she has inched her way forwards a couple of times. I think that the big day is coming very soon!
