Does my child need to crawl before they walk?

(4:07 mins) Research has found crawling has many developmental benefits such as integrating both sides of the babies brain, eye hand coordination, developing binocular vision and building self-confidence. When your baby is ready you can start to encourage them to crawl on all fours before they start to walk but crawling throughout the 1- 5 years continues to have additional benefits.
