My daughter is 8 months old and she tries to crawl but still doesnt get the hang of pushing off. She tries to stand but still loses her balance. She says mama every blue moon but nothing else, should I be worried? Please help.

Some babies will walk earlier than a year but for the most part it is about a year or so. My kids were both 13.5 months old when they took off and there was nothing wrong with either one of them health wise. My daughter talked very well for two, almost sounded like a five year old. My son said a lot of words but was three before he actually talked a few words together. But boys do tend to mature a bit slower than girls. You can not expect a child of a few months of age to have any language as yet. Some simple words like mama, dada, baba, etc. They won't begin to put words together until about two years old.

1) That is exactly what I though, she does try to crawl when she is put down on the carpet, but not on our wood floors.

2) I think I didn't specify what I was trying to say, she says mama every blue moon but doesn't say any other words even if we say them to her over and over.

3) Is that the normal age they start walking, I started walking when I was 7 months and I don't expect her to be like me, but I was curious at what age they start trying to walk.

I am 26 years old.

1) A baby at this age may crawl a lot or a little, depends on how they are developing but sounds like she is doing okay with crawling.

2)A baby this age might say the few words like mama but you can not expect her to talk yet she is not old enough. Usually they are 2 years old before they can do 2 word phrases.

3) She won't walk until about a year old or older.

How old are you?
