My son will be 17 months soon, and he isn't walking yet. Now he has "walked" ,by taking those few 3-4 steps. So I know there is nothing wrong with his legs, and He can stand by himself. But it just seems he refuses to do it. Even when we try to make him stand to walk, he won't do it. He will stand and then sit on his butt. I'm pregnant with baby # 4 so its kind of hard to bend over and pick him up to stand, and get him to walk. Cause well like I said he will either think I'm playing Johnny Jump up with him and he starts bouncing and giggling, or he will just get pissed off and starts to crawl away as fast as he can. I need some advice or some pointers from others who may have gone through this. Thanks ladies.Answer Question

My son is almost 15 months old and he does the exact same thing. I'm gonna give him a few more weeks. If he isn't walking by then I'm gonna ask his pediatrician. But some babies just take their sweet time. My daughter walked at 10 months then stopped and started back at 12 months. But if there is nothing wrong with his legs then I'd say to just keep working with him. That's what I'm doing with my son.
