I don't have any advice my daughters both walked at 9 months and my son at 10 months. Maybe just mention it to the doc next time you go. Does he at least attempt to walk? Or does it seem like he can't bear weight or it hurts him? Those would be reasons I would be worried. But if he's at least trying then I don't see a problem.

 my dd walked at 9 months and ds at 10 months. I wouldn't worry though some babies are slower to walk. Trust me you will be saying "quit climbing on the couch, just sit down!" before you know it lol

He has up to 18 months before it is considered a delay. My nephew didn't start taking off until he was 15 months. My son walked at 13 months and my daughter at 10 months. If you are really worried talk to your doctor about it, but I believe your son is still in the safe zone when it comes to learning to walk.

IMO i say No, that just where he is in the milestone. But if it truly bothers you, set up a pedi appt and speak with him/her about it.

Sounds like he just isn't ready yet to do it on his own. If u have one of those toys that he can hold on to and push around while he walks that might help.
