Any signs of her trying to pull herself up?

Friend of mine contacted her HV about the same thing, at same age. HV said not to worry until 18 month. Friend's son got up and walked across the room without a care in the world at 18 months and a day.

Yeah she pulls up and crawls at the speed of light, climbs ladders and stairs can go down a slide just no walking! confused

If she is pulling herself up and crawling then I really wouldn't worry

Both of my nephews didn't walk until they were 2!

She will do it in her own time grin

My dd was the same - had no interest at all in walking and just wanted carried everywhere. I spoke to the HV who also said they wouldn't worry until 18 months. On the very day she turned 18 months the wee monkey walked across the room!
