My son will be 10 months on the 6th of August and he has been pulling up and cruising fast down furniture for AWHILE! :) Just wondering if anybody has any tips on how to get him to start walking? I know I can't really rush this but I guess I'm just excited! :) (until I have to chase after him all day... haha!)

My tip would be encouragement keep standing him up against a wall, don't stand to far away and encourage him to come to you. What ever you do don't let him fall it will set him right back. Encouage push toys like a push walker,pram, or trolly. And hold his hands and walk him when ever you can. I have 3 kids they walked at 11 months, 12 months and 9 months IMO kids will hit their mile stones when there ready, some are eager to get into everything and some are happy to plod along.

10 months is still pretty young. Both my kids were 14 and 15 months before they started walking. Give him time. he needs to be ready.
