10 months and still not walking? when did your baby start walking?
This conversation has been closed to further comments
My daughter didn't start walking until 14 months. She was walking while holding on to our hands since about 9 1/2 months... she was at that stage a LONG time. I'll admit it got really frustrating. Especailly since everyone in my and my husband's family started walking at around 12 months.

My son is nine months and he doesnt know how to crawl yet but he'll walk (when we hold his hands) all over the place which he started the wk of the 12th when he turned 9mos, so all babies are different, so i wouldnt worry either.

i wouldn't be stressing!!! I went to see our paediatrician when my little girl was 17 months because she still wasn't walking and she said it is normal for a child to walk between 9 and 18 months. The next day she started to walk by herself!!!!! Give him/her til s/he is 18 months before you even begin to worry. xo

My son was over 16 mo. when he started walking. You don´t have anything to worry about. Now he´s 20 mo. old and he´s doing everything that a 2 year old should do developmentally, and he has been since he was 18 mo. old. Kids just have their own pace. One of my friends told me that she didn´t walk until she was 2 years old. (She is about my age) Her parents were really worried and kept taking her to the doctor, but he said there was nothing wrong with her and she would walk when she was ready. She did and there is nothing wrong with her, she is really smart. so you shouldn´t worry.

My son was 11 mos when he started walking and I too, like you, thought it was taking him a little longer than other kids. However i was watching a show on T.V. the other day and the doctor said the normal age for a child to start walking is 15 mos.
