When did your baby start to walk?

She's 7 months and starting to pull herself up on the couch, does this mean she will walk soon? Her brother didnt walk until 11 months

  • My son started pulling himself up at 6 months and immediately started cruising the furniture. He took his first unassisted steps at 9 months, but continued to crawl most of the time. He is now 10 1/2 months and is officially walking more than crawling - although his walk still resembles that of a drunken sailor :)
    My daughter started pulling herself up at 8 months, and loved walking holding onto our hands from 9 months on, but she didn't start walking on her own until her 1st birthday.

  • 10 months
    9 months
    11 months


    The one who walked at 9 months literally walked across the room one week after he took his first solo step. The one at 10 months pulled up and cruised furniture at 6 1/2 months, first step at 8 months. The one at 11 months had been cruising furniture for a couple of months, never took a solo step, just took off!

  • Ahhh...everychild as you see is differant, my little one did the same thing but she still does walk about she just turned 10 months,

    She is pulling her self up....and walks around and jumps in her jumperroooo keeping her legs strongg will really help...i dont grab her by her arms but she can walk and i hold her the sides of her tummy.

  • 14 months. My DS was pulling up and cruising the couch for a long time. I thought he'd never walk...lol. Then around 12-13 months he started standing on his own, pivoting, & tlking maybe one or two steps before he'd fall. Then one day he just got up & took off running. (Yes, running.) And now he won't stop.
