Hiya,

Hope someone can shed some light on this for me,
Jacob is crusing and holding onto things to walk, but he tiptoes everywhere even when i aid him to walk, i put shoes on him but still tiptoes he seems very stable though.
Lily has just started to pull herself up, very wobbly, again most of the time on tiptoes, i cannot aid her to walk as she just pulls her legs up,

Should i be worrying about this, or just wait until they are ready??

How far did you carry them? as in how far along in your pregnancy. Adjust their actual age to their birth date and they may only be 11 months old in their developmental age if they were prem (of course I'm just putting a example on it).



Here is a link to a site I use a lot:

I'd say they are doing what's right for them at the time it's right for them. However if you are worried then the thing to do is to take them to your doctor and ease your mind :)

No problem, glad it helped :D awesome job on carrying them to 35 weeks! I can't even imagine, although I was huge and heavy with my big little girl :D

Thanks Kellie that link helped mine were born at 35 weeks.
"Keep in mind that if your baby was born early (before 37 weeks of pregnancy), he may reach this and other milestones later than other babies (Hall and Elliman 2006)".
