Is it normal for a child who is 12 months old not to be walking yet?

Summer didn't walk until she was 15 months old. So don't worry about it... When your baby is ready to walk she will.

Hi Evette



You have no need to worry hun, your bub is perfectly normal, she has a window up to 18 months to start.

Hi Evette,some people do not understand that all children's development is not the same,if your baby is not alking after the age of 18months then only you get him/her to a docter.There is nothing wrong with your child

I work in child care and have to say - the window for walking is pretty open. Usually we see babies walk between 10 and 15 months. Although some do a bit earlier and some do later.... Don't worry if yours is "only" 12 months. It will happen!!
