No! My daughter started walking around 13 months. My little guy started walking just before he turned 15 months, and since then, he has been making up for lost time! LOL! But seriously, no need to worry until she is over about a year and a half.

Don't worry it's normal that some children walk later then others, my son is 13 months and doesn't walk yet either, but he was 2 months early. My older son started walking at 14 to 15 months. He's been walking & talking ever since, so don't worry, just encourage her and keep things up for her to reach for, this will encourage her to walk, along with a walk behind walker. Take care & I wish you the best with your little girl!

My daughter didn't walk until she was 16 months and now she is 2 years old. She is everywhere. They will do it when they are ready. Doctors don't even begin to get concerned until they are 18 months. But I know how you feel. It makes you nervous and you always want the best for your little girl.

Every baby is diffrent! Dont stress this... We also had a late bloomer:)- And the Dr. said that she is fine she is the 1st born and some times they dont have the same intrest than a 2nd kid who wants to keep up with a big bro or sis:)-

no you have nothing to worry about my eldest daughter walked at 11 months old and my younger daughter only started at 15-16 months old...depends on the child to what age they will attempt to become more mobile :)

My son didn't sit unaided until 11 months never mind walking! He was 18 months when he started to walk and he got the hang of it really quickly. You have plenty of time yet.

My daughter didn't walk until 16 months, and my youngest son is 16 months now and not walking yet. He does stand alone briefly and pushes his little push cart all around. The pediatrician says not to be concerned unless they are not walking at 18 months.

keep trying! My son didn't walk until 17 months...he didn't crawl until 13 months. Consider it a blessing, once they start walking they are harder to keep up with, more falls, and they get into more things!

No the one thing that I have learned from my son is that he will do things when hes ready. So just keep tryin and she'll get it.

every child walks in their own time, my little girl walked around 15 months but a friends daughter didn't walk until 20 months and now you can't tell the difference, they are at the same level
