My daughter is 11months old. She has been cruising since about 8 1/2 months. She holds on to furniture and walks onside of someone if they holds her hand. After they let go, she just falls to the floor and starts crawling. She has the push walker toy, and she used that with confidence. One day, she walked all morning just getting up and walking by herself and then falling and doing it over again. But that was just ONE day. I know she's ready to walk, but for some reason, she doesn't want to let go. She can even get on all fours and stand up without holding on to something. She also has really good balance. What can I do to encourage her to let go and walk on her own? Her birthday is 9/11 and she has a party 9/14. I would just like her walking for her party because I would hate to have to entertain while holding her the whole time being that I am 6 months pregnant. It would be such a GOOD thing for her to walk before her birthday!! I will do anything to encourage my baby to let go and take steps on her own instead on holding her hand or her holding onto something. I will work EVERYDAY if I have to. Anyone please help!!!
