When did your kids start walking?

My baby is almost 14 months old and isn't walking by herself yet. I know she still has quite a bit of time before I should be concerned but there is a little boy at church (who is 15 months now)that starting walking at 8 months. My little girl is petite and he is a lot smaller than her! It is really funny to see this tiny little boy walking around!!

  • My daughter took her first steps a week before ther 1st birthday. She really was getting around about a month or two later. Good luck.

  • I think it was around 10 months that my daughter really started walkin on her own, all I know is when we moved into her own place when she was 11.5 months, she was running... once yours starts walking (and its ok that she isn't yet.. they all develop at their own rate) you will be chasing her all over the place and keeping her out of trouble!

  • My daughter walked at 12 months and my son started walking a few weeks ago and he's almost 16 months. So be patient it will happen. Is she pulling up, standing by herself for at least a few seconds and cruising along furniture. If she is doing these thing then walking will happen within the next few months. If she is not doing these things then it might be something to ask your pediatrician. My son just woke up one day and started walking and he hasn't looked back.

  • My son started walking at 7 months. But, you cant compare your DD to everyone child. Every child is different and develops in different ways. My DS may have walked early but there are kids that started talking before he did at the same age. So it all depends on what your child is ready to do. She will get there.....soon.

  • My son walked on his own at around 13 months old. I child can walk on their own anywhere from about 10 minths -16 months.

  • 9 months. I think she was just above the average. Don't worry.
