  • This is something you should talk to her pediatrician about. If he isn't worried, then I wouldn't worry. Try to do some exercises to help her get more strength in her legs.

  • No, you don't even really talk to your babies Dr unless they are still not walking at the end of their 16th month. And even then it is not concidered "late".
    At 19 months if she is still not walking take her in. Untill then relax, she will do it in her own time.
    My son did not walk until he was 15 months old, my friends daughter ( who is smart as pie)walked later than that. Don't worry and don't pressure her to walk, you might actually make her not like it if you do that.

  • no... some babies don't walk until 18 months or even later. I wouldn't worry.

  • Do you put shoes on your child? Does your LO cruise?

  • no just give her some time she is only 14 months just because other babies are walking before her doesnt mean there is anything wrong with her just help her with it and give her sometime she will eventually get it. my youngest sister didnt start walking till she was two and the doctor said there was nothing wrong with her and that she would pick up on it eventually and she did so just give your daughter some time.
