. Your baby learns where he wants to go and moves in that direction.
. He develops hand / eye co-ordination which is vital as he grows for reading, writing and physical activities.
. He strengthens muscle tone in his arms and hands, legs and feet.
. His hand grasp is developed which can enhance his language development.
. He develops visual skills which allows his eyes to focus on toys near him and in the distance- binocular vision
. It stimulates his inner ear or vestibular movements which effects his balance.
. Hundreds of touch and position messages flow to his brain.
. Crawling allows the left and right sides of the brain to work together.
. Communication between the left and right sides of the brain are strengthened as crawling is a cross-lateral movement, which allows him to move and think at the same time.
Crawling also influences an infant’s socio-emotional development. We have all seen babies intense desire to crawl and emotion at the frustration of not quite being able to do it! This is how positive and negative emotions are learned and then expressed more frequently and intensely as the crawling skill develops.
