my 14 month old daughter is not walking yet,she cruises the furniture with ease,climbs beds/sofas when she can and stands and walks with anything that moves,but she is not walking yet! i'm getting a bit concerned it's her weight that's stopping her. shes about 27lb 7oz and chubby-me and my husband think it's cute but could it be stopping her? she was EBF until 6 months and was chubby then. she still has breastmilk for sleeping 2/3 times a day and eats brown rice/pasta/bread lots of veg/fruit/beans pulses,lentals and meat so i don't feed her crap. is there anybody else in the same position? advice would be great, it's seriously stressing me out

Sounds to me like she is doing fine and on the right track. Some kids don't start walking until they are 18 months and don't perfect it until they are two.

Give her time mom.She sounds right on track, so in no time she will take off.Its to do with confidence also.Encourage but don't push it.She will do great.All in its own good time as they say.

My only advice would be - do NOT worry, and ENJOY it. As soon as they start walking you have to start chasing them!!!!!

If you are seriously worried about her weight, take her to see your G.P. or early childhood nurse. But I seriously doubt she has a problem if she is bearing her own weight to stand up :o)

I think she will be fine i know of kids that didn't walk until they where 18mth and older. I personally dont think there weight has too much to do with when they walk unless they are seriosly obese.. which she isn't. if ur stll concerned next time u go to the doc's ask.. but im sure she will start very soon and u will be wishing she was only crawling still .... lol
