Developmental milestones for Crawlers

Watch to learn more about developmental milestones when babies start to crawl (Crawler stage).

Toddler on the go

At this time, your toddler may try “cruising”—walking while holding onto furniture. She’s also starting to imitate gestures as part of her cognitive development. Stimulate her playtime with these activities:

Follow the leader


Make funny faces or quack like a duck and flap your arms. Your baby learns from copying your movements and sounds.



Take a cruise


Place pieces of furniture close together so she can cruise from one place to another. While she’s cruising, hold your arms out and call her to you—but be there to catch her if she loses her balance.



Toys to consider


Toys to try that encourage imagination and activity:


  • Lift-out puzzles.
  • Digging toys.
  • Cars, trucks, trains.
  • Board books.
  • Shape sorters.
  • Crayons.
  • Dolls.
