My 13 month old is not even trying to walk. He wants to be carried all the time. I'm expecting this August and have not picked him up much but his dad and brother and grandma keeps carrying him around. I think he knows that he won't be the baby for long and is trying to get as much time in as possible. LOL! I'm not concerned because he's a climber, crawler, and cruiser. He'll walk when he's ready.

My little guy is 13 months as of yesterday and still no walking! He holds on to differ items and goes right along and we will catch him standing on his own every now and then but no attempt to walk yet... a few quick steps here and there but nothing to crazy yet.... I am not rushing him and I can do without bumps and bruises for now... he gets enough just crawling!

my daughter turned 1 on the 30th, she cruises a lot and walks with a walker (do not have a walking ring, she got the walker on her bday). she crawls with one knee up, but is quick as lightning. she has her whole life ahead of her to walk, so not pushing her. it will come at its own time...oh and by the by,she has just started teething...her first tooth not even out as yet...just shows that all babies differ and at the end, all will be walking talking little angels!

my daughter was full on walking 2 days before she was 10 months old. She didnt crawl much because all she wanted to do was be standing up and cruising the furniture. I think it depends if your baby is extremely curious they will walk sooner than others? Sometimes I wish she was more laid back, but I love love love her just the same!!!

My son started took his first steps at nine and a half months old, and then started walking about two weeks later. We were all so shocked since his older brother didn't start until he was 14 months! I think he started walking so soon because he wanted to keep up with his big brother. Now we have two little runners on our hands! Haha!

Hi, my daughter started few steps when she was 10 months old and then not until she was 11 months old when she finally give crawling. My son who is four years old ( heart baby) finally walked at 20 months old. They said children started from 9 months to 18 months and he beat that age range. When he started walking he didn't crawl the next day. Every kids are different. I hope this help. thanks

My boy took his first 3 steps together the day before his birthday (April 20) - then perfected the walking thing last week. Now he is walking all over the house but still crawls if he wants to get somewhere fast, mostly because he falls when he tries to speed up : )

My little guy walked right at 10 months. He gets around pretty well and definately is a climber! Fortunately, he can get down from most places he gets up on. He has hit milestones faster than my daughter, but I think its a means of self defense. She gives him a lot of attention, and he doesn't always want it.

Mine turned 1 on the 12th, and still no walking!
She's standing up against objects, but is too much of a fraidy cat to let go of the sofa/table/chair etc. she's even scared of using a walker.
She was a very late crawler though, so I'm not expecting too much just yet.
My daughter started walking 1 week ago! (age 12 months and 1 week). She had been standing a few seconds on her own for the past few weeks, but then last sunday she just got up and walked. just like that. She was so proud of herself she practiced all evening. Today, 1 week later, she will still crawl when she wants to go somewhere fast, but is walking more and more every day, and getting faster at it. Also, she seems to be better at it barefoot (better balance) than with shoes.

Xander stood un-assisted on Dec. 4th, then took his first steps on Christmas day! He is now 13 mons & is in a full on RUN! However, he is not talking just yet. He has said a couple words, and uses sign language... but all kids are different! :) Be patient... once they start, they don't stop! lol

Eric started walking at 9 months and he is now able to walk backwards! And sideways and now he is running and trying to jump. BUUT he still won't call me mama! He says 11 words or so but he just won't say mama. He can but he just calls me nana. So some develope early speach and later physically or the other way around. It's like a surprise when you see how each developes.

My babies both walked early my girl now 4yrs walked at 9mths after only crawling at 7mths. My boy now 12mths walked at 10mths after crawling at 4.5mths. My understanding is that crawling for a good length of time, is more important than walking, as crawling on all fours stimulates both left and right brain activity.Babies are so different my friends little boy didnt walk till 18mths but now he is so coordinated more so than mine.

My daughter will be 13 months on 6 May & isn't walking & don't think it will be for a little while yet. She started crawling 2 months later than my son. He started first steps at 12 1/2 months so didn't expect her to be an early walker (earlier with words tho). My dad didn't walk till 18 months & he hasn't stopped since - still working as a builder at 70! A friend works with African babies & said the earliest they walk is 15 months (culturally they get carried a lot). There's such a wide range of whats normal.

Ive also noticed a pattern that if the infant has another sibling that is mobile, they tend to start walking a little earlier than average. My son is an only child but still started walking a around 9 months. I had a lot of free time and was able to work with him faithfully every day. It depends on the child. They are all different and develop differently. A child that didnt start walking until he/she was 18 months could become the President of the United States. You never know.
