My 10 month old isn't crawling yet. On a few occasions he's got his knees under his bum but hasn't been able to balance. He has really strong leg muscles though and loves standing. Is there anything I can do to help?

Keep encouraging - he will get there in his own time and in his own unique way. Put toys in front of him and then move them a little further away to let him reach for them. My little boy actually never crawled! He just shuffled on his bottom, then walked at 18 months. You might find your son just prefers standing and walking! My other boy walked at 12 months - they're just all so different.
