9 months:

• Can hold things between thumb and index finger and hand things to you
• Stands while holding onto something
• Asks for things by pointing and babbling -
• Starts saying ‘no’ by shaking head and moving away

My baby can do all of the above but the problem is my baby still cannot crawl. He is able to move but only backwards.

Is that normal or what should I do?

Dear mummy

Your baby is ABSOLUTELY doing all the right things at his age !

Crawling backwards is common at 9 months , as babies at this age are not fully coordinated in their motor skills .

No worries ..
