What can I do to help my son over his fear of walking?

I know he is at the point and ready to walk. He can stand for a few seconds alone but when it comes to the point of taking a step he becomes unsure and just gets down and crawl. Oh by the way he is 13 months.

  • Let him be, he will let loose on his own.

  • It's so early!! It takes them awhile to go from the first step to walking everywhere. Right now, crawling is more efficient. He'll get there all on his own, I promise! Be patient, mama!
