    Default Late walkers... when did they walk?

    My baby is 14 months and not walking. She won't stand alone either and if you try and hold her hands to help her walk she sits her cute little butt down (and usually yelps a bit at the indignity of the thing ) she does walk around pushing the toddler stroller and shopping cart things. My other two both walked around 11.5 months so this is new to me! when is it outside the range of normal if they aren't walking or standing alone?

    My DS1 didn't crawl until 12.5 months and was 15.5 months before he walked.

    Sounds fine to me. Mine didn't walk until fifteen months minimum. You say that she can walk pushing something, so that shows her legs can support her fine, and she has some balance. I wouldn't worry at all A friend of ours, her daughter didn't walk until she was 21 months old! She had no issues, just no interest in it. She's perfectly fine. My son was a finger walker, the type who you followed, he held our index fingers, walked that way for ages. Middle kid wanted none of that, but would walk around furniture etc just never let go. Then our last, had no interest in walking until she did it. Enjoy it she's staying a baby longer

    18 months before they need to be seen by a dr just in case (can be an issue if they wont stand at all, or wont walk assisted) but most dr's wont be concerned until the age of 2. some kids just dont like to walk.

    L would randomly stand, unassisted in the middle of the room at 12 months but did not walk until 15 months. She crawled at about 11 months.

    My youngest brother did a "butt-scoot" and didnt even walk on furniture or with toys forever. He finally walked just shy of 2, (which was considered very late but theres nothing wrong with him...he just didnt want to walk)

    I dont like the whole, "oh they should be (walking, crawling, sitting, talking) by THIS age" thing. Babies and tots are all unique and reach different milestones at different ages. I know youre not implying said statement, but I hear a lot of it and statements like that are what cause moms to worry, even when theres nothing to worry aboutn

    The Nippissing says 18 months, but that's just a guideline.

    DS2 didn't start walking until 20 months. At 18 months our doctor referred us to a physio therapist at Thames Valley Children's Center. They said if he was showing signs of walking (furniture walking, walking with a push toy) than there wasn't too much concern.

    Mine was a week before she turned 15 months. She just did it one day (had been a champion cruiser before) and exceled within a week. You would never know the difference now, a few months later!

    MY DD was a butt scootcher too and didn't walk until 22 months. I think that the bum scootchers are already moving around upright and don't feel need to stand up lol.

    I detest the pressure of milestones too all it seems to do is induce stress and worry

    She does walk....you said it yourself, re-read your post! She only does it when SHE has a purpose, pushing the stroller or shopping cart. Sounds perfectly normal to me!! Why would she walk any other time? She has 2 siblings and mom to meet her every need Sounds like she knows what she is doing! I wouldn't worry.

    DS1 - walked at 13 months
    DD - walked at 17 months
    DS2 - walked at 17 months

    DD could get around more quickly by doing this strange crawl that she had. DS2 still prefer to be carried than walk if he can get away with it...lol
