    Ds1 began walking shortly after his 1st birthday.
    I did absolutely nothing to encourage walking.
    I simply made sure that he had ample opportunity to cruise.

    17 months. 2 weeks later exclusively walking. Just decided to take off one day!

    I think visiting my in laws house helped. Their house/rooms are spacious and she "cruised" a lot easier than in our tiny house. I think putting chairs, tables spread out makes them want to go from one spot to the other.

    Apparently those walker things aren't the greatest as they learn to walk/balance with their feet spread wide. Then it takes them longer to correct this 'learnt prob' when they take to their feet.

    My little 7mo (6m corrected age) only commando crawls, but if I hold his waist and walk my feet either side of his, he picks his feet up and walks with me. He has amazing balance when standing, and I attribute this to being in a jolly jumper every day for an hour or so all up. They use these for baby rehab in hosps and I've heard reports of lots of early walkers who used them. They all do it in their own time, I suppose...

    My DS is 10 months and walking more than crawling now, he took his first steps at 9 months, we didn't "do" anything to encourage him, but made a lot of fuss and cheered him on when he was crusing.
    He had a push along walker but he never used it and spent time in the jolly jumper but not since about 6 months when he learnt to crawl.

    He is a determined babe, with everything!
