My wonderful son is not walking he can pull up to a stand and can walk while holding on to things but if he lets go watch out! He may take one step on the way down. All of my friends kids are walking and my Mom says I am holding him to much which I do hold him a bit but he does have floor time and crib time too. I am wondering when is it normal that babies learn to walk? Thank you much!
Oh, he is extremely cute, and looks way too smart to crawl his whole life! Yes, I know it can panic you when they aren't walking by 12 mos, however, doctor's just want them mobile, even crawling or scooting by 12 mos, cruising by 18 mos, and walking usually comes shortly after that. My nephew didn't walk until 14 mos, and started talking really early, and potty trained really early. So don't let him being a later walker make you think that he'll always be late. That just isn't necessarily the case. Also, it's hard NOT to compare your son to others, but babies all develop at their own pace, not by the book. I always say that "He'll be (whatever) walking, talking, potty-trained, etc) by junior high! It relieves me of looking at the calendar wondering if it will be today! Have a great day!

Usually at around a year to 14 months. But some kids just take a little longer.
