At what age did your baby stand independently?

My DD was 9 months when she started, and a few weeks later she was taking her first steps. DS is almost 10 months and still has no interest in standing alone. But he does stand while holding on to furniture, and walks along it.

  • Both of mine were close to 14-15 months and not walking until 17 and 18 months respectively. They were considered to be at the very lat end of 'normal'

  • He could pull up to a stand on things at 7 months, let go of things and stand or i could stand him i the middle of the floor and he would stand there independantly at 8 months, walked at 9 months 2 days, and could get up in the middle of the floor not holding anything and stand by himself shortly after he started taking steps, So 9.5 months at the latest. He has been able to stand with me holding his arms since literally before he was 2months old. I remembering showing th pedi he could do it at his 8 week appointment and asking her if it was ok to do :)
