I worked for a physical therapist and we saw a lot of toe walking. I would mention it to your pediatrician and see if they could suggest something.

My daughter is now 26 months and still walks on her toes. I don't want to make you nervous but if I were you, when your child starts walking make sure to put shoes on that don't allow your child to walk on her toes. I have to take my daugther to therapy next week because her tendants aren't stretched. My doctor told me not to worry about it until my daugther turned 2 but now that she's over 2 and still doing it, they want her to go to therapy.

Both my boys did it.  For awhile they would even walk on their tip toes.

It is quite normal. My son is about to turn 1 and started standing on his toes when he was about 7 months too. He is pretty smart and only does that when he is holding on to something. We all laugh and call him a gymnast. He is yet to walk, so do not be surprised if your baby is not a fast walker. Just enjoy what he does and like Melissa said, watch what is around.

My daughter did that and no one believed me. Yes some kids do things like this early. I would suggest you just watch the baby ver very carefully. My daughter did this and fell and ended up hitting her head on a vacuum and getting 5 stitches. So definitely make sure to watch what is around. If your child is doing this already I'm sure he/she will be an earlier walker!!!
