  • If this makes you feel any better, My DD is 16 1/2 months old and she will only walk with pushing something or a long the couch or table. All she has to do is let go and she is walking. So I know how your feeling.GL with your LO

  • I agree to be patient but my daughter was walking at 10 months. What i did was i would hold her hands and stand in front of her then walk backwards and have her follow then when she looks comfortable with it let go but watch that she doesn't fall. I only did this for about a week and she was walking. I kinda wish i had waited because she is now 16 months old and running everywhere lol. GL
