  • My son started walking at 9 1/2 months and my daughter started walking a week after her 1st birthday. It varies for each kid.

  • Like Niasimone said, every child is different. My 15 year old started walking on his 1st birthday (crossed the room to get at his presents). My 2 year old started walking about a month after his 1st birthday.

  • My daughter was 9 months old. It was Thanksgiving Day. Most kids walk inbetween 11 and 14 months according to ECI so don't worry if your child isn't an earlier walker. ECI told us it's better they crawl longer and walk later than walk early because of development but every kid is different. The list Mia as excelled and her doc says she's on a 21 month old level verbally and developmentally so again each child is different.

  • My daughter started walking 5 weeks before she turned 1, but she didn't start walking regularly (as in more than she crawled) until just this past week, about a week after she turned 1.

  • Both of my boys took their first steps alone at 8 months. But they weren't fully walking around the house without holding on to something until 9 months. But every baby is different with genetics and environment. My nephew turned one May 25, still waiting for him to walk on his own even though he can take a few steps by himself. My neice turns one today! She has been walking for one month now and they live togetther (cousins).

  • Abigail started "toddling" at around 10 months and now that she's 14 months old she's 100% walking now and doing great.
