My DD is 12 months old. She can say Mama, dada, bubble, hungry, she waves bye bye and hi, and says No no as well. She can point and pick small objects up fine (better than fine ><). But when it comes to walking, she's falling way behind. They want her to be able to stand unassisted in the middle of a room, and she still only pulls up on things, and walks only while holding at least one hand. She sometimes stands on her own, but only when I trick her and hand her a toy and she forgets, but when she gets bored with the toy, or realizes she's not holding anything, she sits right down.
How can I help her to learn to stand unassisted and to walk? I've tried walkers and she refuses to use them. And my mom makes me feel terrible by saying every one of her 8 children walked before they were 14 months old... And I don't think at my DD's current progression that she will walk by then.
She's also a big baby, 27lbs and 31 inches.

Next question overall
Should I go back to school when my kids are young?
