  • My oldest started walking when she was a little over a year old. My son was walking at 7 months and running by 8 months. My youngest started walking at 14 months.

  • Normal is 10-14 months. Sounds like your friend has an advanced baby who will run her ragged. and that other one jumping out of the crib. So much work to keep up with them when the get active early especially if they aren't all that verbal.

  • My DS is 9mo and not walking on his own yet, just cruising, but my DD was 9mo when she started walking.

  • My son was a big kid and started walking at 13 months. From what I have heard larger kids tend to walk later. My daughter was walking at the end of 11 months, but I really believe she would have walked at 9-10 ish had we not had a house fire and disrupted our lives.

  • my son is taking a few steps and then soooo close to walking. he is 11 months. I think though he prefers crawling and has had no real inclination to walk. My dad said my and my sisters and brother didnt crawl we just walked..

  • I started at 9 months but my daughter at about 13. Doc keep saying she'd be walking soon starting around 4 months b/c she *always* wanted to stand and had very strong legs. But no. Took first setps at 1 year and just keep cruising for a while.
