So my daughter will be 15 months at the end of this month and she's not walking....she will walk with assistance and will pull up to her knees, but she's not cruising or trying to walk on her own. However I do see progress every month. Should I be worried that my 15 month old is not walking? Anyone else have a child not walking by 15 months and nothing was wrong? I guess I just need some encouragement that she's just moving at her own pace and will walk one day. Thanks!

My son just started walking on his own at 17.5 months.He just woke up one day and did it. Get her some good walking shoes so she feel confident and is not afraid of falling. That seemed to help our son. Once he got his confidence he walked fine. By the way "normal range" is 9-18 months. So don't worry about your 15 month old not walking.

As lots of others have said each child is an individual and progress at their own speed.

As long as there is nothing physically wrong with her, your daughter is fine.

She is probably developing in other areas first - whats her speech, fine motor skills, social skills or hand-eye coordination like? I'd almost put money on at least one of those areas being better developed than the 'norm'

My youngest was 21 months old before she was walking. It turned out that there wasn't anything wrong, but I was worried. I had every test done to man. I went to the school and found a program for early childhood. They came to my house and worked with her. Within less than a year she was fazed out. They admitted their help wasn't much help, it was just on her time. Keep positive and if nothing else.... help strengthen those muscles for when she is ready! Best of luck!

Every state has an early intervention program your doctor can refer you too. It is typically free or income based and infant and toddler specialist will help evaluate your child and should also leave you with suggestions to try to encourage walking. The program is a wonderful tool, even if it is to set your mind to rest, the flip side is if there is an underlying reason for the late walking you will catch it and have support in place so he can catch up to his developmental milestones. One trick I have used is to put chairs in the center of the room about two steps apart with a fun toy or snack on the seat- it becomes a game to pull up and is not worth the effort to get down and crawl to pull up again- the chairs can be moved further apart as steps are increaseed.

my son didn't crawl until 11 months and didn't walk till he was 15 months. He's now 2 1/2 and very physically on track (runs, jumps, walks backwards, etc.). Your sweetie is just being herself, don't worry about your 15 month old not walking yet!

[deleted account]

you are not alone. Our youngest daughter who is now 5 years old would take steps and would walk with holding a hand. She took us by suprise at my grandmothers memorial. We had went back to my grandmothers house and she was sitting on the floor and looked up at me and pulled herself up to standing position and took off walking down the hall like she had been doing it forever. Just be patient. She will walk when she is ready. We have 3 girls and they all walked at different ages. Hope that helps put your mind at ease since your 15 month old is not walking yet.

Don't worry she will walk, you are right she is just going at her own pace, I know of babies walking at a late age, don't pick her up to muchshe would rather be carried than walk, if you keep her on the floor she will get up and start to walk, don't rush her she is almost their anyway.

don't worry that your 15 month old isn't walking.

I opened my email today, and this topic grabbed my attention. I felt like it was speaking directly to me. I have been worried sick because my son is 14 1/2 month and not walking. He doesn't do the typical crawl. He scoots around on his bottom, and he was a late "crawler" on top of that. He didn't scoot until about 9 months. The doctors make me think that something is wrong and want me to take him to physical therapy. I guess I should, but I have horrible health insurance b/c we own our own business and it doesn't cover PT. He is, however in my opinion, progressing. He pulls up and walks around the furniture and will walk with help while you hold onto his fingers. All in all I am relieved because I feel as if he won't walk until at least 18 months.

My daughter didn't walk til she was 16 months old. I work in a physical therapy clinic so we see and hear of all sorts of things like this. If you are seeing progress then I feel like she will begin walking very soon. My daughter never even crawled and it was around 13 months before she starting pulling up. She was just a late walker. Absolutely nothing is wrong with her she just walked when she got ready. Also if she is walking with assistance then she is probably very very close. Don't worry about your 15 month old not walking. She will be up and walking around everywhere before long!!!

My son didn't walk until almost 18 months. Now he won't stop; he runs around in circles. Soon you'll long for the days you could put her down and expect her to still be there a minute later, I promise. ;-) Doctors actually say the longer a child spends crawling the smarter they'll be because of all the tangible exploration they have on their hands and knees. She's just developing in other areas at the moment; she's got a lot going on and walking will happen eventually. :-)

My eldest daughter didn't walk on her owm until she was 18 months old, nothing was wrong she could just get to everything she needed by shuffeling along on her bum and then pulling herself to stand. I think you will find that she will get there in her own time, and like i say my daughter was 18 months so don't panic about your 15 month old not walking yet, it does happen..

My mom told me that I did the exact same thing at that age....and I turned out fine :) She said I was about 16 months old and I would walk just fine with her holding on to me and when she would let go, I'd fall down. She also got very worried thinking something was wrong with me and was considering the doctors. But then she paid more attention she said and noticed that I was seeing her shadow let go of me and it was a security thing with me...once she 'tricked' me into letting go yet following very closely so as I thought she was there, I took to walking just fine. Hope this encourages you somewhat.

My son who is now 4 didn't walk till he was 18months old and he never crawled he scooted on his butt. Then my Daughter didn't walk till she was 2 YEARS and one week old. I was so worried, but the night she walked she took 30 steps and turned around. She just need to be sure she was ready and felt safe walking on her own. Like most everyone else said every child is different. I often asked my Dr. if they were ok and he said they were fine so as long as your Dr. doesn't have any concerns than I am sure they are fine. Both my children run, climb and play like everyone else -you would never no they were late walkers. I was so excited to go to the park this week and see my 2 1/2 year old climb up the ladder and go down the slide without a problem -such a change from last year. The same goes for Reading. A child might learn to read at age 3 and another at age 9 and the child who learned to read later may in the end become a better reader than the one who learned at a very early age.

Hello! My son was born 51/2 weeks premature. He was not walking at 15mths either, so initially I was worried too. Others encouraged me that "they" all do things at their own pace and suddenly one day he will decide to walk. He did not have anything physically wrong either. He was a great crawler, so I think he was quite content getting around that way. When he did start walking, we were at our trailer sitting in a big circle of friends and he suddenly took off towards my mom and never looked back!!! Your daughter will be fine. I am sure she is just happy putten around the way she is. Life is good what's the rush!!! Ang.

Try getting a walker. it gives them support, and shows them that they can do it by themselves

My granddaughter started pulling herself up and walking along furniture and stuff at about nine months old and we figured she'd be walking definitely by the time she was a year old - she's quite tall and gangly - but she didn't. Then we realized her shoes were way to small. As soon as we got her the new shoes she took off. I'm sure that's not the case with your little girl but a thought.

Just be aware but give your child some time. My first son walked at eleven months. My second son walked at 14 months. There are walking wings that can assist if you feel the need to aid your child in walking. I think you can get them at Toys R Us and maybe Target. Make sure you give the child opportunities to walk without assisting too much. My doctor was conserned about my child's speech. My first child was talking very well by the age my second is now. He will progress in time. Don't be worried or alarmed just be aware. I do Occupational therapy and have worked with children that show delays or disabilities. Between you and your physician, if you feel your child needs extra help, have a physical therapy/occupational therapy eval. Again, just remember your child is beautiful with or without a delays, and you always have options to assist your child.

My daughter did not walk until almost 18 months. She was tiny for her age, and walked fine as long as she was holding on to something. Everyone told me not to worry, that she was find and would go on her own in good time. Which she eventually did. However, when she was 22 months I discovered that she was off the charts far sighted which is why she had a hard time letting go of objects to walk. Just some food for thought.

She's so beautiful may god bless her. My opinion as an older mom is that when your daughter is ready to walk on her own she will, I don't think that there's nothing to worry about as long as she's healthy. I can understand because when my older son was a baby he wouldn't speak at all, he would just point to things & make sounds whenever he wanted something, he was about three years old. I took him to the doctor & he told me not to worry so much that he was fine, is that some children have different stages of development. You can try taking her to the doctor if you're in doubt, but most likely that's what the doctor is going to tell you if she's already healthy. Just give her some time, it wouldn't her if you continue to her out.

You'll be glad to know that my children walked at 14 mos. and 17 mos. There was nothing at all wrong with them -- they were just slow starters. Make sure you keep good walking shoes on her -- their ankles need that extra support. Before you know it, you'll be out of breath from chasing her! Good luck, mom!

Enjoy it while it lasts! Children who get a late start usually take a few wobbly steps and then proceed to running full steam ahead. I have a feeling she will be racing around your house grabbing everything within her reach before you know it!

My son (the fourth child) didn't start walking until he was 18months, I was very worried since all the other children walked by their 1st birthdays. Went to the doctors, did lots of test, but only to find out that he was lazy and had too many brother's and sister's willing to carry him all the time. The end result - he started walking when we refused to pick him up. She'll walk soon, don't you worry!

You have nothing to worry about! Each kid is different and each milestone taken at their own pace,being 'lazy' nothing to do with it.

My 6yr old daughter(7 next month) took her first 3 steps 10 days after her 1st birthday,but my son(turns 3 in July) didn't start until he was 18 months old!!

And hasn't stopped since!*L*



Any concerns,of course see your babies doctor..but give them till 18 months old,before really investigating as to 'why not'

PLEASE!! DO NOT WORRY!!! sounds like she is fine ;) my 2nd DD didn't walk until she was almost 17mo old. She just didn't feel the need I guess :)

Do you have any older children?

Don't let ANYONE convince you that she needs to be "tested" --- she will walk when she is ready.. sounds like she is on her way!!

She'll probably walk before you know it. It's actually considered within the normal range if a child walks by 18 months of age...it's the later end of normal, but roughly within the normal range. She just might be cautious. Is she trying to talk and play with sounds and imitate your sounds? If she is late with both walking and talking (fewer than 10 words by age 18 months would be late--and keep in mind that "muh" for "more" and "ba" for "ball" are words at that age). Wait a few more months. If you are still concerned around 18 months, then call an occupational therapist, go to Pediatric Motor Playground in Lafayette or call Regional Center of the East Bay (or your local early start program) for an evaluation.

My daughter didn't walk until she was 16 months old. I didn't walk until I was 18 months old and I am fine - I just didn't want to walk. As long as her other motor skills are ok - I wouldn't worry.

The fact that she pulls up, walks with assistance, and shows progress every month probably suggests that your instincts are right and she is just moving at her own pace. Unless your doctor is worried about her development for some reason, I would TRY not to worry. :) Just keep providing her opportunities to practice walking, along with all other physical skills. Strong muscles everywhere will help her when she's ready to walk.



My middle daughter did not walk until 19 months! And I do know someone who said their little girl didn't walk until 21 months. With my daughter, it was literally the day before her scheduled physical evaluation to assess the fact that she wasn't walking! :) She went from not walking AT ALL, to getting up and taking 7 or 8 steps across the room to get a book!



I also remember worrying that this indicated that she would somehow be physically slow or uncoordinated throughout her life. If it gives you some comfort in some way, she is now 6 years old, takes gymnastics, and is quite coordinated. She hasn't been "slow" at anything else. She just took her time walking. Good luck!

My middle daughter walked at 15 and a 1/2 months. Once she could sit on her bottom and reach a few toys she was content. She crawled at 8 months. She is now 12 years old and a red belt in karate:)

I didn't walk until I was 2. They finally tricke me into walking by holding onto a piece of hose and thinking I was supported when all I was doing was walking around holding onto a piece of hose with both hands. I ultimately became a dancer and performer so don't worry about it. Walk with her by your side holding her hand and finally she will want to break free.

Try this simple trick: go to any playground and watch the older kids running around. Now tell which ones walked early, average or late. It doesn't matter when they started, they all end up proficient at it! One thing I learned with my two sons (now grown) is they all have their own pacing and priorities. Is she paying a lot of attention to another skill or activity? My older son started talking, then stopped completely for two months while he working on walking (all directions and backwards), then running. Then he started talking again, making the exact same progression he did the first time. Now he's a poet, songwriter, musician. My younger son had entirely different methods but got there just the same. He's working on becoming a writer. So just relax and enjoy her. Moms compare their kids too much! They're all special and wonderful!

my daughter is almost 15 months old and is not walking on her own yet. She is cruising and trying to climb but is not walking independently. Which is a concern because she should be getting ready to enter the toddler room at her daycare but I would not want to leave the infant room if she cannot walk.

I have four children and they all walked at different times. I don't think their is anything wrong with your daughter, she is just taking her time. Children are funny, it could be that is her way of keeping your attention. One of my graddaughter's played a game she would walk just as long as no one was watching but as soon as someone would see her she would sit down and then craw. So don't be discouraged everything will be fine. She will be running before you know it.

I have a friend whos son didnt walk until he was 18 months old. Children develop at their own rate. They say if children arent walking by 3 (they being doctors) then to be concerned.

BUT just keep in mind once they start walking they never stop. Be blessed that you have a baby that enjoys crawling. Your crystal and porcelain collectables get to stay unbroken for another day :)

Hi there



My daughter is already 16 mths old and she is just starting to walk with some help in the last 2 to 3 weeks (by holding on to chairs, bed, people, etc). My mother-in-law who helps me babysit her just told me today that she can now take a couple of steps without any assistance! Initially I was rather worried like you, but on second thoughts, I reckoned each child progresses at a different speed, so I think you need not be overly concerned.



You will be surprised to learn that you can hardly catch up with your girl when she can walk.

Hi my name is Amanda and I have a 21mth old now named Zackary and you shouldn't worry my son didn't start walking until 16mths to 17mths. Now I can't get him to STOP lol...She should be fine. I just let my son start walking when he was ready and he just picked it up one day and hasn't stopped. She should be going to the doctor soon around 18mths I believe if she isnt walking then I would ask her pedetrician.(sp) Hope I could have been of some assisstance....

My eldest son walked 2 days before 15 months, he just stood up one day and that was it , he was very sure footed and rarely fell over after that . He was a very sensible child and now the same in adult hood .. I feel that a slow walker indicates a cautious character, because my 2nd son walked at 8 and half months and was a very energetic and fearless child and nothing has changed !

I wouldn't worry everyone is different. It maybe just a matter of fear of falling. She probably scared herself at some point. I had early walkers. However, I also had one who took his first steps and went 4 months before he bothered to walk again. It was faster to go on his hands and feet. No crawling at all. He looked like an ape. If you looked at other kids mine were all behind in crawling because they didn't do it until later than most.

Kids do everything when they feel ready. Before you know it you will have to run to catch her.

My last son didn't walk until he was 16 1/2 months or talk at all until he was nearly 2. He just took his time and now he runs all over the place and talks up a storm. (He's 3 1/2). Every kid has their own time line - I had 4 others before him and they all reached these milestones much earlier - I wouldn't worry about her!

My son made his first steps at 14,5 month. Here, in Finland, it's ok if baby doesn't walk till 20 month, after it it's not normal. So, you just wait and give support to your baby. Maybe it's good to visit some parks, where she can see other babies walking.

YES SHE WILL WALK SOMEDAY, EVERY CHILD IS DIFFERENT. SHE MAY BE DEPENDENT ON YOU, ARE YOU DOING TO MUCH FOR HER? MAYBE YOU SHOULD PUT HER IN A WALKER FOR SUPPORT AND PLACE TOYS, OR COOKIES,OR EVEN A SIPPIE CUP ON A TABLE AND LET HER GET IT HERSELF. JUST SOMETHING AS SIMPLE AS THAT MIGHT ENCOURAGE HER IF SHE IS AFRAID. TRY THIS AND SEE WHAT HAPPENS.IF NOT THEN I WOULD CONSULT HER PHYSICIAN FOR MORE IDEA'S. MARY.

My daughter was 14 months before she even stood for the first time. My son was 9 months! I think they say wait till about 2 before worrying. Is she communicating OK? I think if everything else is on track then don't worry.

Mother of 13......I had children that didn't walk till they were 18 months. Babies move at their own pace. If she is a first child she will definitly move slower than other children with older siblings to folow in their lead. If her doc isn't concerned and she is hitting all her ther developmental mile stones, I would hold back on panicing for a while and just sit back and enjoy her for a little longer in this stage 'cause once they walk there's no going back, you'll miss that "baby" stage feeling and almost wish she couldn't walk just so you can take a break.

My daughter (now 5 years) crawled at 18 months and walked at 21months and she is FINE! I was so worried - we went to a child neurologist and did PT - turns out she just had a gross motor delay - benign hypotonia was the exact diagnosis, I believe. Anyway, sounds like your daughter is in pretty good shape - she will do it - just a matter of time. It is hard because when you look around all you see is 12 month olds walking. ;-) My doctor said several times that children are all wired differently - and they don't all do everything at the same times. Don't worry - she will walk!

Do not worry! My son didn't walk until 17 1/2 months, they are all different, unless she is in pain walking I would just let her be... trust me once she is off all you'll want is for her to sit down again!

Every child develops at their own speed. I have a 17 month old daughter and I question some things that she does every day. I had the same thought that you did at one time though....I though that she was never going to walk because all she did was crawl all over the house. I later found out that once she started pulling herself up onto things and walking along them while holding on...she wasn't far from walking....and now I can barely keep up with her at times!!!! Trust me though....if she is walking with assistance and along the couch or along furniture while hanging onto them...she is not far from walking all by herself. She will be walking....let's just hope its very very soon!!

My nephew was walking at like 10 months, but it took my son till 16 months. Every baby is different, and learns in their own time. Don't panic. If you're really worried, ask your pedi. He or she can put your fears to rest. Good luck!! :-)

my son didn't crawl until 11 months and didn't walk till he was 15 months. He's now 2 1/2 and very physically on track (runs, jumps, walks backwards, etc.). Your sweetie is just being herself, don't worry about your 15 month old not walking yet!

you are not alone. Our youngest daughter who is now 5 years old would take steps and would walk with holding a hand. She took us by suprise at my grandmothers memorial. We had went back to my grandmothers house and she was sitting on the floor and looked up at me and pulled herself up to standing position and took off walking down the hall like she had been doing it forever. Just be patient. She will walk when she is ready. We have 3 girls and they all walked at different ages. Hope that helps put your mind at ease since your 15 month old is not walking yet.

Don't worry she will walk, you are right she is just going at her own pace, I know of babies walking at a late age, don't pick her up to muchshe would rather be carried than walk, if you keep her on the floor she will get up and start to walk, don't rush her she is almost their anyway.

don't worry that your 15 month old isn't walking.

My daughter didn't walk til she was 16 months old. I work in a physical therapy clinic so we see and hear of all sorts of things like this. If you are seeing progress then I feel like she will begin walking very soon. My daughter never even crawled and it was around 13 months before she starting pulling up. She was just a late walker. Absolutely nothing is wrong with her she just walked when she got ready. Also if she is walking with assistance then she is probably very very close. Don't worry about your 15 month old not walking. She will be up and walking around everywhere before long!!!

My eldest daughter didn't walk on her owm until she was 18 months old, nothing was wrong she could just get to everything she needed by shuffeling along on her bum and then pulling herself to stand. I think you will find that she will get there in her own time, and like i say my daughter was 18 months so don't panic about your 15 month old not walking yet, it does happen..
