  • My oldest daughter didn't stand till she was about 10 months, my middle about 8 months, and my youngest about 9 months. Every child will reach this milestone at a different time, your DD is right where she needs to be. You can't 'make' her stand or walk any faster than she's ready to...at this point, I'd enjoy the cruising stage, because once they start walking, its a whole 'nother ball game.

  • I bought activity tables. Instead of having toys on the floor, the toys were higher up so she wasn't as interested as the floor anymore.

    It really helped motivate her to stand, and I believe eventually walk. She was walking by 10 months.

  • You can get an activity table at Wal-Mart, Target, Babies R' US...any of the major chains will have them, and sometimes you can find them at kids consignment shops and/or the Salvation Army for cheaper than brand-new.

  • I bought mine on Craigslist. Half the cost, so I get that and a walker. This is an example. Be careful with what kind of walker you get. If they're not very stable, they will tip over. That's why I chose the model that I did.

  • 11 months for my daughter, she was walking 2 weeks later. It's not something I wrote down, I'm just basing it on pictures. My older son walked at 12 1/2 months, he could not stand on his own for his 12 month pictures, so he stood on his own within days or maybe a week of walking as well.

  • I don't think mine started walking until she was about ten old. However, when she started walking, she immediately graduated to running! We've been running after her ever since!
