How many of your babies are walking and are about 12 months?

I know each baby developes different rates, and most boys are a little behind I was just curious, if their walking around.
Mine is starting to get the hang of pulling himself up and sitting down, and moving around the table. He leaned on his Dad's leg this morning, but was standing almost by himself.

  • my son started walking at 10month now he's a year now and spinning and walking really fast. The baby at his daycare is about 11months and is just sitting up not really doing much. Everybaby is different, Even though my son can walk he doesn't talk. He speaks baby but no words.

  • Katelyn is 11 months old, she can stand on her own and walk if holding on to something or someone, but still gets down and crawls when coaxed to come to us, but it'll be soon

  • My DD was 9 mos and my DS was 8 mo. I gave them a ball to carry and they didn't notice they were actually walking by themselves but when they did, they took off and were into everything. Don't rush your babies. Keep them as young as you can.

  • All mine walked between 10-12 months but we will have to see with this one. Less than 4 weeks before she's born yay!

  • My baby boy started walking at 11 months, BUT he doesn't talk and he is 20 months. His teacher told me that boys tend to be slow when it comes to talking and potty training. Every child is different but if he is NOT walking by 18 months then you should worry, now just enjoy that you don't have to be chasing him yet.

  • My son was pulling up and holding on to things while walking at 8 months. But he did not actually take off walking independently until 14 months. He has been talking since before 12 months though. I believe his first word was at 10 months.
