My son isn't walking yet, he crawls, stands, sits, walks along furniture with hands but is not yet walking. The Dr. told me that she is not concerned until 18 mo and not walking (that was at his 15 mo check-up). Any tips for me to help him walk?

While your son is holding on to something like the couch, try blowing bubbles, he may start walking to go after them.

my daughter didnt start walking until 14 months old. Have you tried sitting on the floor with somebody and having him try to walk bac and forth? thats how we finally got her to walk. and We would hold onto one of her favorite toys and wouldnt give it to her unless she walked to us.

Thankyou for all of your help and suggestions. I will continue to work with him and later this month I will take him to the Dr. for his check-up.
