Neither of my boys walked until they were 15 months old. Jonus didn't run until he was nearly 2, but Ben was running as soon as he was walking. Jonus was counting, knew most of the letters of the alphabet, all the colors, the basic shapes and more when he turned 2, so don't let anyone tell you it has anything to do with intelligence, either. Jonus is just not as interested in sports and stuff, he's more of a bookworm. Every kid is different.



Now, if she's not sitting, reaching for stuff, holding her head steady, etc, then you might want to be concerned. I know some kids with CP and might could tell you a little about it if you think you need more info..

My first son didn't walk until 15mo. and my second not until 18mo.  They will eventually do it some little ones are just not in a big hurry.  Mine are doing fine and running all over the place now and you would never know that they walked late!

Children tend to concentrate on learning one skill at a time. When they are working on language they are not concentrating so much on motor skills, etc. Is your little girl developing another skill right now? I really wouldn't worry about it too much. My son did not walk until he was 14 months old. He was, on the other hand, saying a few words by 8 months. All kids are really different. Let them do their little test, but it's probably just her nature. She'll walk when she's ready.

my son didn't walk till he was 15 months old (nearly 16) and only because his Grandpa helped him, he was super stubborn about it with us but my dad is super special and Aston was overly exctied to show him what he could do. lol



I wouldn't worry no baby is ever the same and I have heard of some not walking till 18months.

Don't freak out..mine didn't start crawling until 11 months...standing until 13 months and walking at 14 months...it takes time but they will.  I also bought her a walking toy and toys she had to use while she was standing.  Good luck.

All kids take there time and some are just slower than others , especially if there is older siblings as they do alot for them .

My now 3 1/2 year old daughter didn't walk until 15 months - whereas my son started running at 10 months. i think all kids, even within the same family, are different and do things at their own pace. Of course get it checked out if the doctor is concerned but it may just take patience and encouragement.
