Ds is going on 16 mo and is barely crusing yet. Dh didn't walk until he was 2 yrs! So, out of curiosity, whats the latest out there? How long did your toddler wait to toddle?

DS was 17.5 months, as I recall. He's a cautious child. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

DD was 10.5 months, DS 9.5 months *BUT* I had a friend whos baby was was 19 months *and* she had had #2 at 16 months. That was a long year! (carrying a baby while pg and then having two non-walking babies, one of which was a very large 18 month old).<br><br>

Owen was about 16 or 17 months. He took FOREVER, so cautious. Guess that isn't a bad thing. and I thought I'd have to carry him less when he started to walk. HA!

Meg was 14 months, and everyone gave us such a hard time about her being "late". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

Ds is almost 15 months and not quite walking on his own yet, but very close. It seems like he's been "very close" for a few months now! He is a VERY cautious baby, though, and very big at 28 pounds. We're ready for him to move on his own, believe me. I'm getting weary of hearing about all the 9 month old walkers out there...

Onica is 13 months and has just recently started walking more than crawling. Right now she does the drunk swagger and picks her feet up so high that she seems to be marching. Very cute.<br>
She's into more trouble than ever, though, so I wouldn't be in too much of a hurry for your little one to go.

Isaiah didn't take his first steps until he was 15 months old. It was a couple of weeks after that when he really started to get the hang of walking. He cruised by 11 months or so I think.

Tom walked at 14 months. Now, at 19 months he can kick a ball across the yard while running! His older sister walked at 10 months (6 months earlier) but he is amazing with his gross motor skills now. It proves to me that it doesn't matter at all how early they walk - it has nothing to do with their future athleticism.

Dakota starting walking 3 or 4 days before his first birthday. He walked really well until we put shoes on him. It took a whole week before he could walk in shoes.<br><br>

Kailey took two steps a day before her birthday, and then didn't take another step until she was 14 months old. I have read the average is between 12 and 18 months. But, averages don't mean squat in my opinion <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

Dd statrted walking at 9.5mo. She has always been so indipendent, all of her life. Sience about 3mo she has spent most of her life on the floor. She hated to be picked up or carried so spent all of that time praticing crawling, sitting, crusing, staning ect. While I do love her and her independence I hope the next one is a little more attached to me and will wait a little longer to learn to run away from me. Speaking of which my dd has recently started slowly backing away from me when I am comming to pick her up. She is so funny! Sorry for rambeling Im lonely today.

Ds started walking at 12.5 months, by which time I'd already heard lots of "Oh, gosh he's not walking yet??" from other moms, usually in an icky tone. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:

Ds was 10 months. He's always been an independent little boy and did almost all the physical markers (holding head up, rolling over, crawling) early.<br>
I think that these things are genetic though. Dh and I both started walking at 9 months. So having ds walking early was not a surprise.

DS started almost 2 weeks ago & just turned 13 months. He hasn't quite got it mastered yet. He walks around with his arms bent, hands up in the air. Just in the last 3 days did he start liking walking as much as crawling, and he still falls on his butt. He doesn't talk at all either. But he can throw a ball overhanded and aim it at you.

ds cruised the walls at 8 months and stood up and walked across the room the day he turned 10 months. He is very physically adventurous. My dd took her first independent steps at 11 months. I rememeber it because it was at the Saturn dealership and we were looking at cars.
