how long did your child go from crawling to walking?

My daughter started crawling about a week ago. Her dad will be flying in for a visit Halloween weekend and it would be nice for him to catch a first. Wondering how long it took for your child to start standing or taking steps.

  • it depends on the kid lol. my first never crawled and started walking on his first birthday. he could stand alone from about 9 months though. my middle one started crawling at 6mo, cruising soon after that and walking at 10 months. my third crawls since 7 months, can walk a couple of steps here and there, and started standing alone since around 11 months. it's so wierd how there's no rhyme or reason as to their progress

  • My oldest started crawling by like... 10 months I think.... he wasn't walking well independently until he was about 18 months, however, my second son was crawling by 7/8 months and walking well by 9/10 months, my youngest is only 6 months and still working on crawling.

  • One of mine started crawling and within a week or two went right to walking but another took like 7 or 8 months. It is amazing how different they are.

  • My son started walking just after he turned one and crawled maybe a whole foot of floor before he got up and took off.
    My daughter is 11 months and has only tried to take a step.
