When did your baby walk (if he/she has yet)?

My Eva is 9 1/2 months old and has been pulling herself up and walking along furniture since 7 months when she learned to crawl. She now is even able to stand totally on her own and only gets back on her knees when she realizes she's standing by herself. She is so close to walking and even takes steps when we hold onto her hands. I'm totally fine with her not walking yet (she's already into everything lol) but I'm just curious when everyone's kids started walking. In some ways I look forward to it, in some ways I don't lol.

  • our daughter started to walk when she was about 9-10 months old.. but only when we held her at both hands.

    at around 11-14 months it worked great on one hand. Since she is 14 1/2 months old she walks all by herself. Two weeks after that she fell for the first time (when walking alone) and wouldnt walk without being held for 2 weeks :-/ .. but since then she is running around like theres no tomorrow :D

    oh and she started crawling AFTER she knew how to walk ;)

  • mine was really late - 14 months. if you want her to walk, buy one of those toy carts. that''s how mine walked.

  • 10 months and 15 months. I'm sure that my son who walked at 15 months "could" do it about 3 months sooner, but never thought to let go until then! I was quite happy to let him take his time!
