  • my kid was 9 months. I didnt start until almost 13 months. My husband walked at 8 months. Every kid is different.

  • My son was 10 1/2 months when he started walking. My niece is 14 months and she's only taken 3 steps so far! It just depends on the baby ;) But 9-16 months is avg.

  • The average is from 10 to 14 months. My first little girl was walking at 7 months. My second dd started walking 1 day before she turned 1. My older son starting walking the day he turned one. My little baby boy is only 6 months, and he shows absolutely no interest in walking at all. It differs for all babies. No worries Im sure your baby is quite normal for his age.

  • every child is diffrent. I have a firend that her son is going to be a year in 3 weeks just now starting to walk, my kids were #1 8.5 months and #2 10 months, my real dad was suposably 7 months although he was 10.9 pounds when he was born. Then I have a nephew that started right after his first birthday and another nephew that is 18 months old and just started walking
