What was the youngest age your baby started walking.

My 6month old can stand with supporting his own weight playing with a toy, or even just holding my hands where he then walks. He is close to crawling, but just refuses to do it, and prefers to be on his legs. His way of going all over the place is rolling.
My oldest son was 12months and 1 week before he walked, but could it be possible that my 6month old son could walk by the time he is 10months or even earlier.

  • My second started walking the day he turned 9 months old . . . his older brother was around 14-15 months before he took his first step (they are both autistic by the way) My daughter walked at about 11 months and my youngest son was 12 months.

    It's possible, I got one that proved it can happen :o)

  • Both my kids started walking at 9 months, and were running by 10 months. But, their dad & I also walked at 9 months, so I was expecting it.

  • My oldest DS walked at 10 months 2nd DS walked at 8 months now my 3rd DS is 9 months he is working on crawling he only goes backwards right now each baby is different as I have seen with my 3 boys I think my 2nd start so early is because him and my oldest son are 15 months apart I think that had alot to do with it my youngest their is a 12 year differance with my middle son so my LO sees his big brothers as big ppl to him plus my older boys are off doing their own thing most of the time.
