How was your dc at reaching other milstones?

Ds didn't walk until 22 months. His paed said he'd only be concerned if he wasn't walking by 2 years.

have a HV check up on hips and general body tone

dd did not walk until very late(19) months; we found out later that she is hypermobile

Would agree with pp to get a check on hips and muscle tone especially if she's not keen at all on standing up. My dd was a late walker at 20 months due to problems with muscle tone and hypermobility. She has physio which can be helpful if any problems.

Hope your lo gets walking soon - I know it's horrible when all the others are walking and your lo isn't sad

my DD now 19mths only walked about a month ago but we have found out she is also hyper mobile especially in her knees and hips and has physio every 10wks.

Would definately get HV to check her over.

DD is now walking but very wobbly especially without shoes and we gets lots of comments about how she should be walking better by now hmm angry

my dd didnt walk until just before 2nd birthday later diagnosed as hyper flexible ankles, she is now 5 still a bit wobbly with sports, jumping etc but catching up, shoes with lot of support helped

I don't think you should worry. They do develop differently - and normally. DD crawled at 6 months, cruised at 9 months and walked at 11 months. DS1 never crawled (never, rolled over from back to front although adept at rolling from front to back by 4 months), bottom shuffled at 8 months and walked at 15 months. DS2, now nearly 10 months, just sits and looks cute ... shows no signs at all of wanting to move. Who knows why. Get your DD checked as the others have recommended, but I bet there is nothing 'wrong', it's just the way she is. And that's a good lesson for future parenting 'worries'!

Both mine were late walkers (22 months and 19 months). Apparently dh comes from a family of late walkers and paediatrician said it often runs in families. (By the way, both are excellent walkers now and dh was a champion sprinter so no advantage to walking early!!)

i have a friend who's LO started walking at 22 months so it's not that uncommon.

one (slightly odd) question - does your DD have a WheelyBug?
