Hello everyone . I'm new with this. This is my first child. I'm only 20. My son turned one yesterday. I feel like he's not where he should be. Iv been reading a bunch of things that he should be walking and talk by now. He only says mama Dada and some babbles.. He has not really walked yet he stands up by holding on to something but has not let go or started walking. I'm not sure I'm getting upset with myself cause I don't know what he should be doing. Any tips please help ....

Don't worry yet. Most doctors don't become concerned with walking until a child is 18 months and not walking. Also talking.....a lot will develop in the next year. If by age 2 yrs old he is still only saying mama, dada and some babbles then it is time to worry. Remember any material you read that the information is general. Each child is going to develop at their own rate. Somethings they may get sooner then what the books say and some things may come later. The good books will give you an age range on when to expect certain milestones. Another good person to ask is your doctor. They will let you know if there is reason for concern and also let you know by when it is time to worry.
