My DD learned to walk 2 weeks ago and was quite good at it for 3 days. Since then she's been really ill with an infection and has only just recovered. The weird thing is that she seems to have forgotten she can walk & is now crawling everywhere again.
Has anyone else had this sort of experience where a baby learns to do something & then stops for another few weeks as if it'd never happened?
We had exactly the same thing. DD was walking across the room quite happily, then 3 days later she started getting her first 2 teeth through. That was it, she was miserable for 2 weeks and in that time just plonked herself down and chewed things. After 2 weeks she started getting up and cruising and within a day or two was back to walking again.
Its probably not that she's forgotten, just that she's still a bit wiped. Ds walked at 10m and was walking loads, he got a terrible chest infection at pretty much bang on 12 months (Xmas day to be exact, great timing!) and he reverted to crawling most of the time for a wee while.
