  • between 9 to 14 months, *usually*. there is a wide range. i started at 12 months, my son at 11 months. my cousins' baby didn't walk until around 15 months. same with my sisters' friends' baby.

  • Every child is different and walk at different ages my DD started at 17 months old and my SDS was walking at 10 months and my SDD was walking at 14 months. So every child is really different don't push them that will not do anyone any good that will hold them back even more. I walked at 8 months old, my SO walked at 9 months. Good luck the fun really begins when your LO's start walking.

  • i started at 10 months, that's considered early though.

  • depends on the kid.

    #1 was 15months
    #2 was 7 days after her first birthday (not sure why the date sticks out in my mind)
    #3 was 10months.

  • I agree with Stefanie... I would say average is between 9 and 14 months... and there are always some that start earlier and some later.
    My son started at 10 months

  • my daugher was 7 1/2 months-we were SO happy. Then we figured out she was into EVERYTHING so when it came time for my son to walk we didn't push him into it at all-and he didn't seem interested much anyhow-I think he was 13 or 14 months when he started

  • My son started walking a few weeks before he turned a year old. We stood him up between us and he just did it, walked that few steps from me to DH. After that, he didn't crawl again.
