  • Sounds to me like she's getting there,ma! Don't worry. I'd worry if she wasn't attempting to do all the stuff you said that she's doing! Sounds like she'll be walking on her own anytime soon now..don't sweat it! :)

  • Sounds like she's almost there. Just keep having her practice walking but not a baby walker. Hold her hands below her shoulders

  • Talk to her ped. It could be an issue with the inner ear and her balance that is keeping her off her feet.

  • It's ok. She will. If she can stand and pull up. She will soon walk. My son was 14 months. I know a girl that was 18 months. She was carried all the time though. Just bear with her.

  • Everything sounds normal so I would not be concerned. Some children just walk later than others.

  • Well, as you know as a parent, every child develops differently. What does her doctor say about it?

  • My daughter was a late walker. If you're concerned, talk to your pediatrician. Otherwise, just wait and enjoy the blissful peace of a child who doesn't walk yet.

  • My ped said if they are doing all that you mentioned...they are fine. It is not till 18 months that dr start worrying.
