My 12-month old is not walking or pulling up to stand, should I be worried?
The window for walking is typically between 12 and 16 months. Walking can happen for some children earlier and some a little later. If your baby is not walking by 18 months, you should consult with your pediatrician. Your twelve month old baby should able to support his/her weight when you place the baby on his/her feet. Can you baby stand holding your hands? This would be a good activity to practice. You should also offer your baby opportunities to pull to standing holding your hands. When your baby is standing with your help, you can try to get the baby to take steps holding your hands. Offer your baby a push toy to hold onto and with your help push while taking steps. These activities will help your baby develop independent walking. Have fun playing these games with your baby.
