My first son never crawled at all and skipped straight to walking after he was a year old. I wouldn't push it. No child has ever gone to Kindergarten not knowing how to walk, talk, or go to the potty by themselves. He will walk when he is ready. Pushing them can actually delay it further (not saying that you are pushing him) so I would not try to force it.

Well, babies decide when they are ready...if your sweet boy's doctor doesn't seem concerned, I am sure he is ok.

He was probably giving you more time to baby-proof the house. :)

You can strenghthen his legs by having him stand on your lap, that may make him want to walk, but it really is up to him.

Good luck mama, he will be running before you know it!
