How long did it take for your baby to transition from crawling to walking?

My daughter has been taking a few steps here and there, for a little less than a week. Other people I know's babies went straight from crawling to walking within days! I know I shouldnt be so impatient because time flies blah, blah, blah.. but I'm so anxious for my little girl to walk! :)

Walking stories, anyone?

  • My oldest was crawling at 5 months (I think) but wasn't walking until 19 months...that's far from average though...he had fluid build up in his ears which caused his equilibrium to be off. My youngest started crawling at 5 1/2 months and was walking at 10 months. The average age for walking is between 12 months and 15 months. Don't rush her, she's fine.

  • One of my kids started crawling as soon as he turned 4 months old, but didn't walk until he was almost 12 months old. Come to think of it, none of my kids walked before 12 months (except for maybe a few days before). He was just the earliest to crawl.

  • Crawling since about 5 months... walking since 11 months.
    It sounds like she will be a pro in a couple weeks! Have fun! :]

  • OP here.

    I'm not worried at all about her, I know she'll walk when she's ready, I was just hoping to hear how long it took others to full on walk after taking their first steps.
