Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

DS was 10 months, my nephew was 16 months or so.. all kids are different, I would not worry just yet, but do make sure your pediatrician is in the loop

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

14 months is well within the normal range. I've had friends whose kids haven't walked until 15-16 months. My kids have all varied from 9-12 months (with my girls walking earlier than the boys) but they tend to be very strong physically yet take longer to start talking. I've heard of babies walking very late, close to 18 months, but they are very verbal and develop language skills early.
Don't worry, just enjoy your little guy!

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

older DS was 13 months when he started walking, DD was 8.5 months. Newest DS is 7.5 months and I don't see him walking anytime soon...he's content to just sit and play, or lay on his tummy & spin in circles...he's not really trying to crawl anywhere and if I try to stand him up at a toy, he gets mad and sits back down.

This is my ds exactly he is extremely verbal so I'm thinking he is developing in that sense first. Thanks mamas Im not worried just yet and some of you have made me feel better too and his ped is well informed about everything

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

My DS's were all 10-12 months when they were taking their first steps, but there's a wide range of "normal". My dd will be 6 months old tomorrow and she's already been pulling herself up to standing for a few weeks, which is lots earlier than any of my boys did. I'm so scared she'll be an early walker! I can't keep the living room floor clean enough for her as it is!!!

My son was 18 months. He woke up this past Christmas morning just walking everywhere like he'd been doing it forever! What an amazing Christmas present! lol

My son does things on the later range of "normal". Didn't start sitting up til 9 months, eating solids til 15 months, walking at 18 months, and he's almost 23 months and still not talking. He says mama, uh oh and hi occasionally, and babbles German or something constantly. I say, as long as your child is consistent with THEIR normal, everything is fine.
