My LO was standing unaided and cruising the furniture around 9-10 months. She took her first 2-3 steps at 11 months then refused to do any more until 12 months but its only in the past 2 weeks that shes been walking. Her 2 cousins (twins) who are 16 months can't stand unaided and can't walk but one of them has just started cruising this past month. They we're born at 38 weeks so not too early. x
Dd has been cruising since 8 mths & whizzing about on her walker since she got it at Christmas. Last week she decided that she trusted me & oh enough to walk holding our hands we were out shopping today & she insisted on walking everywhere in between us & holding our hands even though she's still quite unsteady.
She does stand unaided for up to 10 seconds... Until she realises she's let go! Then she panics and clings on to the nearest thing. If she's let go of me or oh she scowls at us as if we did it!!!!
I'm not sure she's going to be walking anytime soon but she is making little bits of progress. Theyll all get there in the end
Ella has been cruising for months, will stand on her own and has taken a step or two (when a bit far from sofa she will take a quick step or two and throw herself at the sofa) She constantly wants to be on her feet and will walk holding onto one hand. She will stand and look like she really wants to walk, her heel will lift slightly as though she is contemplating taking a step.
Ella is almost 14 months old, not sure how long it will be until she finally realises she can do it
I wouldn't worry, every child reaches milestones at all different ages. Personally I wouldn't worry till almost or at 2. My daughter was walking at 13-14 months, my son at 11 months. It definately varies.
