    Default Drunk walking

    DS has walked for about 2mths now, confidently for 1mth now.

    Lately when he walks he looks like a drunk. He stumbles around and trips over himself all the time. Is this normal? AFAIK he's not drinking.

    We're more scared of him falling and hitting his head (which he's done twice this wk) than we were a month ago!

    Have his ears checked out...there may be an underlying issue causing an imbalance.

    Default Re: Drunk walking

    Definitely sounds like it could be ears..my daughter walked at nine months but at 14 months is unsteady whenever she has glue ear or an ear infection.

    Definitely would get the ears checked just to be sure.
    But since he has really only just started walking it could be nothing, just finding his feet still.
    DS 18mths has just learnt to jump with both feet and tries to get around this way lately- so we're back to bumps on the head too.

    My son had the exact same issue, strangers would even comment. He was even unsteady just holding onto his toy box and was always covered in bruisers from always falling. By the time he was 18m we had him checked out by a pead and paediatric physio who referred us for a cat scan which thankfully came back all clear and over the months he improved and now at 3 has no issues at all.

    My step daughter would get really clumsy whenever she had a growth spurt- could it be that?

    My boys get like that when they're very tired... Even now at 4 and nearly 3 they walk into door frames and walls when they're tired

    as for growth spurt, he hasn't gained any weight in the last 2 months.
    in fact he's lose a little, but we have been sick for much of that.
