It may be a few more weeks or months depending on your child. I asked the dr. about our FS falling all the time after he learned to walk, and he said, "That's why they call them toddlers, they toddle, then fall down." LOL! It takes a lot of concentration to walk upright, but now they have a whole new point of view & can get to lots more things, and faster! She may get excited and can't keep up with herself & fall down frequently, but that doesn't mean she forgot how to walk. BTW, now that she can walk, she may have many more bumps & bangs coming because they also don't have good depth-perception yet, and will bend down to get something & hit the table on the way up or down, etc. They are just so excited with their NEW skills, that they forget to "be careful." Congratulations on the milestone!
