Creeping is the action of moving forward on hands-and-knees (quadruped position) with the belly lifted off of the ground.

Creeping is a very important milestone that many babies achieve around 6-8 months of age, generally after a child is skilled at crawling on their belly. It brings the baby a whole new perspective in the world and allows them to explore and climb more!

Contact our physical therapy team if you have questions about why it is so important to crawl and creep.
