Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

My son just turned 10 months and takes three steps at a time at the moment. He'll be walking any day. My daughter was the exact same way.

Personally, if MY child wasn't walking by his first birthday, I'd be concerned and bringing it up to the ped because it would be another 6 months until the next checkup. But I don't really know what is average or what is considered delayed. I'd only be comparing to my first and scratching my head about it. I mean, my daughter got her first pair of playground sneakers when she was 15 months so I had a different reality. Good luck, OP.

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

My DS started walking at 18 month (like two days before he was actually 18 months). His twin sister started walking at 13months.

Up to 18 months is in the normal range.

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

DD was almost 2- she had delays and needed PT. DS was 17 months- no delays, just waited until the last minute. Never cruised the furniture, but did push toys around 15-16 months. Doc would have referred him to Early On (its a program for kids with any kind of delay) at his 18 month appt if he hadn't been walking. But he wouldn't have qualified for services- dd went through Early on, the kids have to have significant delays for PT through them. Anyway- according to doc not walking by 18 months is the cut off.

Normal range is 9-17(18mos depending on which article you read lol). My girls didnt even attempt walking. They just decided that at 18mos it was time and that was that. Walking like pros right off the bat. My nephew started trying at 10mos and had it down by his first bday.

Re: How old was your ds when they started walking

Oldest DS walked the day before he turned 14 months old. Stood up in the middle of the floor and carried a shoe to me. I think it would have been later, but he was loopy from some medication. He was literally running the next week. He has been like that with every milestone. (talking, jumping, reading, riding a bike) Nothing. Then mastery explosion.

DS2 walked around 11 months. For him it was a few wobbly steps here and there for months. He wasn't very good at it until around...14 months.

So even though there was about a 3 month gap between their first steps, they still mastered at the same age.

Both boys were between 16 and 17 months before they started walking. Neither has any developement issues/special needs.

They also didn't start crawling util about 10 months.
