Would It Be Wrong to Stop My 6-Month-Old Baby from Learning to Crawl?

A mom writes in asking about her 6-month-old baby, who has started crawling. She says that, in her current living situation in her mother-in-law’s trailer, there are no carpets. She worries that the baby crawling in this environment is dirty and dangerous. She asks our community of moms whether it would be bad to stop her baby from learning to crawl.
