    Default Not walking

    My Josiah is 13 months old today and not even close to walking, or at least he doesn't act like it... He is my only one, so I have been told that he will not startas quickly as some. At what age did your LOs start walking?

    DS1 walked at 15.5 mo. Went straight to running.

    When I talked to our pediatrician he said not to worry unless DS1 got to 18 mo and not walking / cruising.

    Really broad range of "normal" for major developmental milestones!

    Don't worry. LO is still very young. Before long you'll be wishing he'd sit still for just one second!

    12 months, but I have a cousin who my mom says didn't walk until 18 months. Just be patient, you'll be glad for the extra few months of not having to run around.

    Mine started walking at 15 months. Never thought he would start walking, but once he did, he did it almost perfectly! None of that wobbly baby thing I was told by the doctor that they don't even start to think about being concerned about it until 18 months anyways.

    I wouldn't worry about it either. DD started walking early at 10.5 months but plenty of her friends weren't walking till much later
