When did your LO walk?

Sorry if this has been done to death.

My daughter is 14 months old and, it appears, no where near walking. She can pull herself up, can stand unaided for about 5 seconds, and crawls very well, however she has no interest at all in taking any 'steps'. She doesn't cruise around the furniture, and if she pulls herself up on something just stays there and kind of bobs up and down. She'll walk a few steps aided but then loses all interest and sits down on her bum.

I'm not exactly worried, but I am finding it a bit weird that so many of my mum friends have walking babies but mine is not interested, and to be honest she's an absolutely lump and I'm sick of carrying her around!

My eldest walked at 11 months, but my friend’s daughter who is the same age didn’t move at all until she was 18 months.

19 months. She waited til I had shelled out for a private physio appointment then walked the next day. PITA grin

Almost exactly a week before he turned 1.

He was pretty early at walking though. One of his little playgroup friends was nearly 2 and now at 3 they are dashing around just as well as each other.

The range of normal is huge.

Eldest DC 18 months, youngest DC just turned 14 months. Chalk and cheese.

DD 18 months and DS 19 months

17 months and 13 months

Eldest 15 months and didn't crawl. Youngest 11 months and had been crawling since 5 months. Completely different experience with both. Now aged 10 and 12 and have very different interests and on balance dd10 is more daring and sporty while dd12 likes exercise in her own way but less energetic with it.

14mos, 11mos, 7yrs.
The 7yo does fall outside the scope of normal, though, despite skiing black runs these days.

My dd was 15 months old, however had spend 4 months in hip spica's, then a further 3 months in a night brace. So that affected the strength of her legs.
However no amount of encouraging helped her, she just went when she ready.
Try and not worry about what other little ones are doing. They all do things in their own time 😌

10 months which we couldn't believe but I really don't think it matters. Lots of dds friends were older and they're no more or less able than each other.
DD is very tall for her age though so don't know whether this might be linked?

Mine were 10 months, 11 months and 12 months, all crawled at 8 months.

OP, I wouldn't worry. 14 months is well within normal range.

My son walked a week before his first birthday, one of my daughters the week of her first birthday and my youngest daughter who is now 16 months has been walking since 10 months. There is no "normal" they all range differently in age.

My eldest crawled at 4 months, and didn't walk until 15-16 months. I think he was so good at crawling walking seemed unnecessary...

My DD (now almost 3) was just like yours. No cruising, plenty of crawling, some steps here and there, but very little interest. Then when she turned 15 months, we were going on holiday. Went to Heathrow Airport, and she suddenly decided at that point that she was going to walk! She just walked and walked and walked. No looking back from there. Whilst on holiday, we had to revert back to 2 naps (having been on 1 nap for a few weeks back home) as she was so tired from walking so much, in the heat! I felt like there was very little lead up to it for her, although I could see her legs were getting stronger and ready to walk! It was like a switch went off and that was it.

10 months and 10 and a half months. I'm a childminder though, and have had a lot of kids but not one of the babies I've looked after so far have walked before they turned one and have had them range from 12 months to 20 months.

Ten months ish..both girls

AnxiousElephant77 Fri 05-Jun-20 17:51:35

Dd 14 months and ds 10 months.

RosiePosies Fri 05-Jun-20 17:58:08

Oh this is really interesting. There's a huge scope.

I just thought for sure when she got to one she would be walking, I didn't realise that it could take as long as 19 months.

Dd 10 months ds 9 months. Gives them much more potential for being a PITA smile

Misskittycat16 Fri 05-Jun-20 18:08:02

Try not to worry. DD spent a long time pulling herself along the floor, she eventually started crawling on all fours at 18 months.
Walking didn't happen consistently until she was 20 ish months.
No stopping her now.

DC 1 - it was a few days after her 1st birthday. DC 2 started at about 15 months, decided it wasn't for him then attempted again at about 19 months!
