oh wow, definitely depends on the child, my step children started walking at 8 and 9 months, my own started walking at about 13 or 14 months because of her hip dysplasia which we didnt find out til about 18 or 19 months, really depends on the baby. also i dont know if its a myth or not but trying to MAKE your child walk may cause bow legged, because their bones are still moldable.... i dont know if its true though but it definitely makes sense.

My son didnt walk until he was 16 months old, yet he started walking while bracing himself on furniture when he was 10 months... so its just a waiting game.. there really is no way to tell..i mean for 6 months i was like he is going to walk anyday now!!! haha!

Children all learn things differently and at different ages. If your child is walking along furniture and standing it wont be much longer now and she will be walking.

Most children walk by the time they are 1 year old. My son was 9 months when he took his first steps but some are 18 months or older before they walk.

my son started in the month he was to turn one year old.he would stand alone and could cruise real well and could walk with a walker b4 hand,. and would walk while holding my hands but did not walk alone until that month and now he is almost 14 months and is falling a lot less now he is getting good at it and starts to run now lol.

My sister started walking at 9 months. I didn't start walking until 1 1/2 old. My cousin's son is just over 1 year old and isn't walking yet. Just crawling. It just depends on the child I guess.
