Why does my baby crawl like this?

My baby just started crawling but he’s crawling kind of weirdly. He crawls with one leg but his other leg is tucked underneath him so it drags on the ground when he crawls. He only uses one leg to crawl and the other leg just sits there underneath him. Why does he crawl like this?

    Why have you NOT got down, on your hands and knees and showed him how to crawl?  A baby/child copies what they see...............

    That's completely normal.  Most babies who crawl start with the "Army crawl," which is pulling their body and legs with their arms only, then one leg, then both.

    You need to take the baby to a doctor and see if the baby's leg is injured or without feeling. If child is dragging his leg like it's dead weight it could have a nerve problem or a physical injury.

    It's very normal.

    Our now 24 year old daughter crawled with one knee down, and one leg straight out.

    No big deal.

    Babies crawl in many different ways. My daughter crawled backward for a while before going forward. My son skipped crawling completely and walked.
