My 15 month old daughter is not walking on her own yet and the Ped is somewhat concerned. I have to take her back in 1 month for another check up and if she is not walking by then they will do a work-up to see if something is physically inhibiting her from walking. I don't think anything is physically wrong because she has been progressing. She is now at the point where she loves to walk when holding on to my fingers with both her hands, but does this on her toes. She even wants to "walk" up the steps instead of crawl. She can also stand on her own for several seconds, but thinks it's funny when she plops down on her bottom. Does anyone know of any exercises or anything we can do to encourage her to take the next step (literally)?
