  • My 10 month old is cruising too and just starting to try and stand by himself. I pretty positive the nature next step is walking. I am just waiting.

  • Yes! My DS is 11 months and is taking his first steps. We bait him with something shiny and he walks without realizing it!

  • My lil guy will be 8 months on wed (7-29) and is cruising already too. Hes also just figuring out how to stand alone, although today took a nice little face dive, he's still gaining balance. I'd give her things that are only a couple steps away to work with. Like maybe a table toy thats only a step or two from the couch. that type of enticement might help. I cant wait for my little one to start running around!

  • Yes !!! Natalie is 10 months and she is walking only if she grabs something to keep her without falling ( I see her grabing the couch, my legs, a chair to help herself to walk)
    She only can stand up for herself for like 10 seconds and then she falls in her little behind!!!! : )
