  • ? ...why?

    my daughter starte at 7.5 months. We were so proud- then we learned what a pain in the the butt that was so when my son came along we were like no...just lay there you have a whole lifetime to walk!

  • Not too early, no. The guidelines are generalized averages. Some kids start at 7 months, some start as late as 14 or 15. 12 happens to be the average, but no one can say one specific month is "normal" for every child. :)

  • Definitely not. Apparently at the ripe old age of 10 months, I was walking on my tippy toes, backwards, in circles.

    My 8 month old daughter is working on walking.

  • Babies don't read calendars. He's right on time, for him.

  • No mine son was walking at that age, my daughter was not. My son did not crawl first (sigh) and so the doctor had us make him learn to do it. It is a developmental thing.

  • If he is walking it is not early.

  • One of my daughters was walking unaided by 10 months. Why would you worry about it being too early? If he's ready, he's ready :)
