Hi my name is Trisha and this is my first post. I am a first time mom and my daughter Alyssa was 8 weeks premature. she is now 16 months old and is just starting to walk. she will take a few steps here and there but not improving. I am concerned and I do not know if this is normal for her not to be walking at this age. We had a visit to our pediatrician at 14 months and he said that walking is a 14 month skill. do i still go by her adjusted age which is 14 months and she will start walking soon? or should I make an appointment because she could be delayed? i will say she walks one hand supported with us EVERYWHERE, and she has a walk behind that she walks with everywhere as well. all my friends children started walking between 11-13 months so i don't know what to expect.
