Remember every baby walks at their own time......I walked at 8 months my ex didn't walk until he was 13 months old. Don't panic. Remember it's like trying to watch water boil it takes longer than if you don't focus on it!

That's normal! My daughter was pulling herself up on things at least 2 months before she started walking. She was a late walker ( at 14 months) and is now running and climbing on EVERYTHING at 16 months! Keep practicing with him by holding his hands and helping him take a few steps that way of he will tolerate it but it's fine if he doesn't bc he will walk when he's ready

He's only 10 months, most children are around 12 months so don't worry.

Completely normal! Like said below some don't start until 15 months. Siblings? If not find a few friends for your baby, walkers. My son watched his brothers walking around would get angry that he couldn't catch up with them crawling behind. He finally let go of the couch and took off with them. Still not walking completely but is practicing daily. Babies learn alot from their siblings and peers. Maybe having a few friends up and walking will give him the idea to do it too. :) Don't stress though Mom. As long as he is moving he is on track.

It's normal for your son to be doing what he's doing my son didn't take his first steps until two weeks before his first birthday and some children as late as 15 months old. As long as he's moving around by holding on to things he's doing great and before you know it he will surprise you and take his first steps.
