Probably not. Some children never crawl, instead — like your baby — opting for bottom shuffling (scooting around on the posterior using a hand behind and a foot in front to propel themselves), slithering on their stomach, or moving directly to pulling up, standing, and walking. And if your baby has reached other milestones like rolling and sitting, it's unlikely you need to be concerned.

As long as your baby's using both sides of her body equally, don't worry if she shuffles around on her bottom. Developing the strength and coordination necessary for walking and getting mobile so she can explore her surroundings are what's important, not how she does it. But if you're concerned at all about how your baby moves, check with her doctor.
