My 11month old just stopped walking

She started walking about 3 weeks ago all by herself and then out of nowhere she wont even stand up at all. She acts like she forgot or something. Should i take her to the doctor?

I wouldn't at this point, unless she is showing other signs of regression she may just have done it and then now is focusing on something else.

Sometimes kids have a burst of energy towards one developmental stage, and then their body starts thinking about something else. So she may have gone from 'walk mode' to 'talk mode' or something. Is she showing advancement in anything else or is she focusing on anything else? Is her body growing and maybe she's tired?

Also my son one time was able to hang off the bars in his gymnastics class, and then we went the next week and he couldn't. I realized it was because he had gotten bigger, therefore his arms were just as strong but his body had gotten heavier over the week and he couldn't hold the same amount.

Certainly take her to the doctor just in case, you never do know, but I bet she's just focusing on other things.
