Hitch Crawling

Hitch crawling is the type of crawling that babies will sometimes do where the baby does not crawl with their knees under their hips and they instead will “hitch” one leg out of the side and crawl that way. Babies will do this because their core muscles are a bit weaker than what we want, so this is how they are able to compensate for it while still being mobile. It’s important to address this so that their core muscles do get stronger and allow for proper growth and acquisition of milestones as well as allowing muscles to develop in their hips that get stronger through reciprocal crawling.
