  • My son didn't walk until 17 months and my DD was 18 months. Some babies just take a little longer especially small ones. Your Ped would most likely not be concerned until after 18 months.

  • doesn't....and stand up.....how old are you? LOL.

    He isn't ready yet,obviously,if he won't bend his legs. Don't rush him.He sounds like he is scared.

  • Being early can have a lot to do with it. Even though he is 15 months his body is capable of that of a 13.5 month old. He'll catch up though!!
