  • He'll get over that. Just praise him when he stands so that he knows that hes doing a great thing :)

  • I agree. This is very common. His drive to learn to walk will come back. Just don't push. If he wants to crawl, let him. If he wants a hand, give it to him.

  • My son did the same thing, he took his first steps, fell, and then didn't walk again for three weeks. A week ago he tried again and now he's practically running all over the place. I wouldn't worry. He'll walk when he's good and ready to.
