How old was your lo when they started to walk?

Nine months and one week. First wobbly steps taken this afternoon. grin

10 months. But I wouldn't say it is a good thing, his mind is the same as a 10 month old whilst his body is flying around the room!

DS was 15 months and DD was 20 months

12m, 9m, 15m and 26m!!!!!!

DD1 was 10m and DD2 was really late at 23m- had all the checks on her, she was fine, but why move when your older sister will get you everything you want....

8m first steps, walking at 10m. The next two, later, maybe 11-13m, but cannot remember for sure. Various differences in their development. The early walker was not an early reader, but he is now a good reader etc.

12 m, 12m and 17 months. Echoing poster above: why walk when you have 4 family members doing your bidding?

DS could walk around the furniture at 9 months. He got around but bery slowly. Both started walking independently at 12 months.

My DS1 walked at 15 months, DS2 was 21 months, he enjoyed letting his elder brother get things for him.
DS2 now has five children.The three eldest were all early walkers, the two youngest took after him, 21 months and 22 months.
My mother had five children, she said four of us were walking just after our first birthdays.The other, and only boy, was walking at 10 months.

both walked fully independently at 9 months. We've never met a child who walked earlier. I think it may be genetic as I and both brothers were 9/10m.

My son was 14.5-15 months old. They all get there. He didn't crawl till he was 14 months old either.

I agree that it's probably genetics, dp has a huge family,they all walked at 9/10 months.

Late 18 months... DH was a late walker as well and DD1 was 2 months premature.

FanjoForTheMammaries Sat 14-Dec-13 12:34:30

2 exactly. .she has low tone

CockyMcChicken Sat 14-Dec-13 12:39:13

14 months, 17 months and 12 months.

Middle child (ds) crawled at 6 months but refused to walk!

JoinTheDots Sat 14-Dec-13 12:40:51

2, she has hypermobility

JaneEyreTheRedNosedReindeer Sat 14-Dec-13 12:43:30

14 months .
I was 18 months, apparently. And a bottom shuffler!

Ferguson Sat 14-Dec-13 18:42:16

18 months, but he was tall and waited until he could do it, without falling over.

Lullabyte Sat 14-Dec-13 18:48:37

DS was walking, fully independent and confident at 8 1/2 months. It was a bit freaky, tbh, because no one we ever met had known a child that walked so early.

He was also properly running at 10 months (I blame his older brother who taught him the joys of playing 'chase'!)

highlandbird Sat 14-Dec-13 18:53:22

DS1 was 18 months, DS2 has just started cruising at 7 months!

DH walked at 9 months....I think DS2 might be taking after his dad!
Youngest walker I've come across was 7 months shock

tinselkitty Sat 14-Dec-13 18:57:04

12 and half months

Sneezecakesmum Netherlands Sat 14-Dec-13 18:57:19

9 and 10 months. But early walking and physical development does not equate with future intellectual ability, so don't worry about late walkers.

stargirl1701 Sat 14-Dec-13 19:01:53
