  • My first daughter walked on her first birthday. My second daughter walked about 2 weeks before her first birthday. I used to work at a daycare. We had some that started walking at 9 months and some that started walking at 16 months.

  • They all do it in their own time. Don't worry. My oldest walked at 7 mo (she was big girl), the youngest at 11 mo.

  • Wow 7 mos....thats amazing! I'm not worried at all though as long as they are putting pressure on their legs. I was just curious to see the real age range not what the doctors tell you.

  • I should tell you that my oldest was 24 1/2" at birth. Because she walked so early, by the time she was 1 yr, her shoes cost me a full weeks wages. They had to put wedges in special shoes for her. Her bones weren't strong enough and they bowed real bad. Babies need the extra time to gain strength in their bones and muscles.

  • My son was 17 months old. Didn't crawl until 11 months, so I wasn't to surprised he didn't walk until 17 months.
