Havana is still not walking, she takes few littel steps but only on carpeting t

we have wood flooring and tile she walks if we hold her hand. lets go -sit and feels the floor with her head we put an area rug she only crawl and she cruises she 19 months, therapist say her trunk is-not there yet and soon , I'm installing carpeting. She has has ear infections - tubes she rejected them her ears are full of liquid again i'm going to ask her Emt helps with speech and balance

we did have a MRI to rule something out, even blood tested for neurological disorder. Therapy 3 times a week since 1. i know shell walk but I'm so scared her speech is affected to with ears,we've tested her so much . She does not have autism or mild cp or any thing like that. she plays is very engaging and able to understand us in Spanish and English, still the walking delay. Havana did fall from our bed really hard at five months and we think she;s petrified of floors

  • IM guessing with the ear issues she has some balance issues, inner ear problems can really affect that. Also just the fear of the hard floors.

  • Yep, when a baby has ear infection it will delay the walking because of the balance being off when the ear if full of fluid. Try it sometime when you have an ear infection ..shut your eyes and try to walk....Hope the ear infection clears up soon ...

  • It definitely could be a balance issue, or maybe just a developmental delay. My daughter didn't walk until she was 20/21 months old. But she's a GREAT walker now! All she wants to do is walk! As long as she can maintain weight on her feet (not walking, but standing, I guess), I dont' see a problem, especially if she is cruising.
