Walking

Okay, so my son is 13 months old now and walks along furniture and with toys for a couple of months at least. When can I expect him to walk on his own? Is this late for him? At 13 months should he already be walking?

  • I agree, I wouldn't worry about it. My 1st was 14 months when he finally let go of things and off he went. My 2ed was 10 months and my 3rd was 13 months. All kids are different, when he is ready he'll walk and then there will be no holding him back...lol

  • He is still well within the normal range. I would not start being concerned at all until 15 or 16 months. Be patient!

  • No, thats perfect - "normal" age range is from 12-16 months - my son wasn't walking at his first birthday then 2 months later he was running. it happened almost over night where he stopped crawling

  • between the time my son started walking along furniture ( 8 mos) to walking independently (11 mos) was 3 months or so... I kept thinking oh I bet in a week or two he' ll let go , then another week would go by, then finally he let go and within a couple weeks after was nearly running. I think as long as he's walking along furniture you have nothing to worry about. Every baby develops at thier own speed :)

  • They can stay at that stage for a short time or a long time. Nothing to worry about, just go with the flow!
