hi! i have a 18 mnt old boy who still isnt walking yet, he does crawl around everywere and pull up on the sofas and stuff, and he will walk if you hold both of his hands but when you let go he just goes to the floor i was just wondering if i should be concerned or not x

my son did that. he 'started' being able to walk at about 14 months but he would only take a few steps then drop to the floor and crawl because he was a heck of a lot faster that way. My response was to get rid of all the pants with sewn in knee padding for crawlers and only dress him in shorts so he wasnt comfortable. he took his time but it worked out. my daughter took longer than that to start walking. she didnt start until about 18 months. I had started worrying a little but it turned out she just didnt want to. I actually caught her first steps on video because we took them out to hunt for easter eggs and she stood up and took about 16 steps before falling, picked herself up and did it again. once she felt comfortable trying, she was walking in no time
