Is it normal for my baby to crawl backward?
Definitely. When your baby starts crawling — which usually happens between the ages of 7 and 10 months — she'll choose the most energy-efficient way to do it, says pediatrician Tanya Remer Altmann, editor of The Wonder Years: Helping Your Baby and Young Child Successfully Negotiate the Major Developmental Milestones.
无疑，“当你的宝宝开始爬行时（通常发生在7到10个月之间）——她会选择最省力气的方式（去爬行）。”儿科医生Tanya Remer Altmann，《神奇年代：帮助您的婴幼儿成功地谈判主要发展里程碑》的编辑这么说道。
If your baby's arms are initially stronger than her legs, she'll push or scoot backward. This is common, says Altmann, and doesn't mean that your baby's skipping a developmental milestone.
Backward crawling will keep your baby busy, and she probably won't be bothered by it as long as she can move to where she wants to go. As her legs get stronger, she'll probably learn to crawl forward on her own.
However, some backward crawlers need enticement to get things moving in a forward direction. To encourage your baby, put her favorite toy in front of her but just out of arms' reach.
The struggle to get there might frustrate your little one, but give her a few moments to try to reach the toy without your help. This will help strengthen the muscles she needs to crawl forward.
Note: It's okay if your baby never crawls forward or skips crawling altogether. The important thing is that she gets mobile. Find out more about the fundamentals of crawling and babies who don't crawl.
注意：如果您的宝宝从不向前爬行或完全跳过爬行，就是合适的。 重要的是她可以移动。 了解有关爬行和不爬行的婴儿的基础知识的更多信息。
