  • Well every child is different...some walk as early as 8 months while others dont walt till 18mos. I depends on the child. My daughter started at 9 & 1/2 months.

  • Every baby is different. I would say normal is a wide range and is probably about 9-15 mos for walking.

  • None of my 3 kids walked by one year. They were all walking by 13 months (well not my daughter, we'll see. She is just now 12 months).

  • In my family there is a wide range...My baby sister started at late 7months...crazy I know
    I started at 8

    but my cousins on the other hand didnt start until about 1 and a half

    It all depends on 1. babies desire to walk 2. strength of muscles and balance JMO

  • It can be different for every baby. I walked at 9 months, my brother was 13 going of 14 months. My husband was right around a year.

  • I think it's around half of babies walking at a year. One of mine walked at 9 months, the other is just getting there at 13.

  • My youngest walker was 10 mo old. My oldest walker was 15 mo. (five kids) the others fall in between there. Just a little update on the 15 mo old walker...he's 15 yrs old now & won medals in state track meet last year so walking later did not hinder him in the least!
