Let's talk weird crawlers

My kidlet has never grasped the concept of traditional crawling.

He actually doesn't crawl at all, he walks on his feet with his hands to the ground.

So, I'm not sure what to call it for one..two, I'm not sure where this is going, whether it is a sign that he's trying to crawl or trying to walk..
And three, do any other LO's do this particular type of crawl? I know the dead leg and the army crawl are popular, but I haven't figured this one out yet.

  • My kid did the dog butt scratch move the other day. Instead of crawling he just shifted his butt and sorta hopped. So so strange.

  • One of Bryson's schoolmates does this.  He doesn't do it on the balls of his feet either; just tippy toes.  It looks sooo uncomfortable.

  • Yup we do it mixed with a regular crawl, he's much faster when he does it like that thought so if he needs to get somewhere quick thats how he goes Smile I find it hilarious

  • Half crab crawl, half backbend here. He balances himself on his head and his feet, and can get his back several inches off the ground. He scoots like that, often while clapping his hands. What a loon!

  • Milo traditional crawls, hands and feet crawls, and crawls with one knee down and the other knee up. He's all over the place.

    I love this name! DD does the same thing on our wood floors. It's too funny. She'll crawl normally on the carpet though.

    This.  When he does the hand/feet crawl I call it his elephant walk because it reminds me of that scene in The Jungle Book.

    K started with this weird slither that has adapted to a more refined army crawl. She will get on all fours and rock but hasnt actually moved forward that way. She will also still log roll to her destination if its easier. The other day she remained sitting straight up and just spun around using her heels when my husband called her name.
