  • some as early as nine months, some as late as fifteen months . . . it has a lot to do actualy with baby weight, the bigger the baby, the harder it seems for them to learn to balance all of themself! LOL! my babies all learned right around their first birthday, the latest being my oldest who got little floor time - 13 months. I learned that floortime is key for working the muscles needed for walking and crawling.

  • It completely depends on the child. My son started trying to walk around 9 months and by ten or so he was walking pretty well. And prior to that at 8 months he started climbing on the couch

  • My ODD walked at 13 mos, DS walked at 14 mos and LO didnt walk until 18 mos. She is a tiny little thing in all ways and they think that had something to do with it.

  • My oldest walked at 10 and a half months and my youngest took his first steps at 11 and a half months but really didn't walk much until he was about 13 months.

  • My oldest at 8 months; my youngest, at 13 months, hasn't walked yet. DS1 was motivated, DS2 not at all motivated. They have totally different personalities.

  • Mine were 14 months old. They are twins and started about the same time. My niece was a week shot of 9 months old. There is a large "normal" range, so if the pediatrician says all is well don't stress about it. (I say that because I was starting to when mine didn't walk as early as my friends kids did).
