No not at all.
Crawling usually started on 3 -6 months of age.
At 6 month babies are usually sitting on the floor without any support and around 10 months of age they try to stand and walk with some support.
According to your history the baby shows appropriate developmental stage.
So do not worry.
Fits may be due to febrile convulsions which may not need any treatment and usually resolve after 5 year of age.(But history is not sufficient to tell whether it is febrile convulsions)

Hi, my 10 month old baby fell last night and he had a slight bump on the front right side of his forehead. He cried for a bit and then calmed down and continued playing and crawling around. This morning when he woke up the bump was gone but now his right eyelid is swollen and he can t open it up all the way because of the swelling. I called my Dr but can t get in to see him...should I be worried? Other then the swollen eye he seems normal, crawling and playing with his older sibling.
