Should she be walking by now?

I have a 13 month old daughter. I'm getting worried because she hasn't started to walk yet. She can stand by herself and she walks if we are holding her hand, but she refuses to do it by herself. We will stand her and she will stand for a few seconds and then sit down and crawl. Should I be worried or is this normal?

  • Nope, don't be worried. Some children take longer than others. My son was 14 months before he was able to walk on his own.

  • My son walked at 14 months. The normal range is 9 months-18 months.

  • No not yet. 15 months you want to get a early intervention eval scheduled sicne it takes another month or so to get out to you.

  • Don't worry about it, since she can stand she's probably able to walk, but just a little scared :)

  • I wouldn't worry at all yet. My son didn't even walk til he was 17 months. Doctors don't usually worry until they get to 18 months and are still not walking. Give it time, she will get there.

  • Is your dr concerned? If not then I wouldn't worry, kids all go at their own pace. She may walk slow, but do something else sooner then others KWIM?

  • no worries at ALL! They say girls walk on the later side but who knows...this said I know that peds don't worry until they are 18 months. My good friend's twin daughters didn't walk until 18 months. Count your blessings..lol

  • Don't be worried - they all learn at their own pace. Glenn wasn't walking well until 15 months!
