View Poll Results: Is your baby walking without assistance?
Just stopping by to say hi and I was just wondering if there are any babies who are still not walking? Liam is almost 15 months and he just won't walk... I think he is fully capable, but he won't. He'll push toys and walk and cruise everywhere.
I'm not really worried....as I know he is so close, just more curious. My second daughter didn't walk til she was 15 months 1 week, although she was more delayed in other areas compared to Liam.
Sooo..anyone not walking?? Are you worried?

Thank you Meganpixel for the most fantastic siggy!
Evan isn't walking unassisted yet. He was 15 months on the 5th. He will cruise everywhere, or walk while pushing a toy or a little chair around. He used to walk more holding our hands or a finger, but he's resisting that lately. I think he's fully capable, but he's either not confident enough or he just doesn't feel like walking. I'm not worried, but I am a little annoyed, lol. It would make a lot of things easier for me if he'd walk. I'm hoping he'll decide to start up soon. At his 15 month appointment I was given the warning that they'll have to look into it if he doesn't start walking by 18 months.
Xavier JUST started walking 2 days ago. I was confused & worried. I had him evaluated & they told me he was fine, & it was a confidence issue. He was running around with his push toy, walking holding one of our fingers, & walking pushing anything that would slide. Everytime we tried to get him to walk, he would get upset.
I'm glad I had him evaluated because it gave me peace if mind & patience.
E can cruise, and likes using push toys (or an upside-down laundry basket!). His push toy can go too quickly for him, so we have to hold onto it too in order to keep a steady pace. He can't stand unassisted yet, but he's getting so close! That being said, he's been in physical therapy since around 10 months due to gross motor delays. He didn't really roll over consistently until 12 months.
