What age did your baby start walking?

Hi my baby is 16 months old and he still isn't walking. The health visitors and doctor keep saying not to worry and he will walk when he is ready.

My oldest walked at 13 months. I am worried but speaking to my mother she insists I did not start walking until I was 18 months- taking into account I was born in a 3rd world country where babies were carried by nannies and extended family everywhere.

Anyone else have babies who walked later on? My son talks a lot and I have no concerns about his cognitive or language skills and he does weight bare but has not taken those first steps alone.

Any advice will be appreciated

Its like others have said. He will walk when he is ready to do so. My kids both walked at 13.5 months of age. My daughter, we think had a spell that scared her because she was afraid to stand on her own. We think she tried to take steps on her own and fell down and so waited a while. My son was a larger baby and he had extra weight to deal with and that is why he did not walk until then.
