How old was your child before they walked?

My daughter is one and she just took 5 steps the other day. It's been three days no far and nothing! It's like I dreamed she ever walked...what age did you child/children start to walk?

  • My child started taking her first shaky steps around 8.5 months, and was walking all the time by the age of 10 months.

  • My youngest took his first steps on the day he turned 13 months. He's walking and running like a champ now at 15 months. No worries.`

  • I wouldn't woryy, your child will try it again soon enough. It is perfectly normal (however frustrating) for children to try new things one day, and then wait forever to master it. Hang in there (some kids don't walk until 18 months.

  • My oldest daughter started walking at 7 1/2 months. Crazy, huh? The twins were about 10 to 10 1/2 months old. It varies with every child.
