How to help my 11month dd get over he r fears of standing/walking?

I have a healthy 11 month old baby girl, I say that, to say this that there is nothing physically or mentally wrong with her that would stop her from crawling, pulling up, and trying to take a couple of steps. When my daughter tries she seem a little afraid, so I guess my question would be, How do I encourage her do these things without being to pushy

  • a lot of kids don't start taking steps until 14 mos old or older, so i would just let her do whatever she feels confident with. if she does anything close just tell her you are proud and that she's doing great :)

  • I totally agree. There is nothing wrong if your child doesn't walk a few months past a year. They will do it when they are ready.
