My daughter will be a year in about three weeks. She can walk if she holds onto something but not by herself. Her 2 almost 3 year old sister was walking around with a playskool step start running around the place by herself. However, she won't do it and just sits down. How can I get her to walk? She is an amazing crawler, but doesn't want to walk. I don't want her to fall behind. Any suggestions?

My son did not start walking until he was fourteen months, even though he started to crawl at two months. The best thing to do would be to hold her hands above her head and walk with her, she'll feel more independent and be more confident to take that leap.

your baby is fine...all babies progress at different stages of life...she'll be walking in no time I'm sure...a boy at my daughters daycare didn't start walking till a month after his first
