my son just turned 10 months and he is all over the place. the problem is he wont crawl! he rolls and pulls himslef with his hands. he gets up on his knees and rocks back and forth but its like he is afraid to crawl. i dont know if this is within normal or not. his pediatrician tells me not to worry but my daughter was already walking by now.

My son never crawled, he went straight from rolling to walking (or should i say running ) at around 9 1/2 months.

I wouldn't worry about it, give your baby a few more weeks.

Ditto! Mine never bothered learning to crawl - just went right to walking and running

I think if you did some research you'd find that rolling and pulling themselves with their hands is actually a variation of crawling, so he really is crawling, just in his own way.
I'd worry if he wasn't moving himself around at all, but since he is, go with the flow for now.

Here is just one more post telling you not to worry. Right now I'm staring at my 1-year-old wondering when she's going to walk. She's been standing up in the middle of the room without any assistance for over a month now. She hopped up and down once. She even took a successful step one time, then got so excited that she sat down to celebrate. Kid just moves at her own pace, whereas her sister ran across the floor at 9 months and hasn't stopped. They're all different, but they all get it eventually.

So true! One of mine walked -unaided, across the room - at 8.5 months, the other was almost 13 months old before he took a step!

I wouldn't worry too much, my son never crawled he rolled and used his lil arms to pull himself up and then began "surfing" from couch too couch! He began walking at 11 months! And let me tell you I wish he would have crawled because he went from surfing and coasting to running, ugg.

My son was the same. Don't worry, he'll be up in no time, and then you are going to wish you never worried.
Also, don't use your daughter as a way of comparing to your son. Girls and boys are very different, and in most cases girls develop faster than boys. I have been reading a lot lately about why they are different, and it comes down to development of the brain. One interesting thing I have learned about is that a boys hearing is not as acute as a girls, and this is part of the reason why it can be difficult to discipline them, or why one is constantly repeating something to them.
Big differences. Something to keep in mind.

you know whats funny--as i said my son didnt walk until he was 13 months old.
it was mother's day and we were in a coffee shop--and wouldnt you know it, he took his first steps right there--guess he wanted an audience!
of course then he didnt want to stop walking the whole time and relished in the fact that all the strangers were cheering him on...lol
