When your baby started crawling, how long was it before they walked?

My dd is 7 1/2 mths.old and has started crawling but she also can pull herself up on things to stand up. I'm curious as to the gap between crawling and walking.

  • yeah there is really no way to tell, every child develops at their own pace

  • My son started crawling at 8 months, pulling up on things the next day, and just started walking by himself without holding onto anything today. He's 13 months today.

  • My daughter crawled at 6 months, started pulling to stand 2 days later, was a solid cruiser by 7 months, and was finally willing to let go at 10 months.

    There is no way to judge the "gap". Some kids are happy to crawl for a long time. Some get that needed confidence to let go quickly. No matter which your daughter does - hang on to your hat! The days of knowing she's safely playing on a blanket in the living room while you run to pee are OVER!

  • That all depends on the child. My two oldest started crawling at five months and they started to walk as soon as they turned one. My youngest she was crawling at four months and walking at 7 months. She is my adventurous and dare devil. There is no stopping her, so it all depends on the child. Some are more independent then others.
