    My daughter pulled herself up on things at about 8 months, started crawling at 10 months and walking at 13 months. They will do what they do when they're ready as long as you're not pushing him to do things he's not ready for I wouldn't worry.

    Some babies just do things early. He'll walk when he's ready, whenever that may be. (Don't help him along too much though!)

    When my daughter just turned 6 months and started crawling and pulling herself up on the couch. About to hit 8 months and still pulling up and cruising around the edge of everything. They will do what they want when they want. I myself walked unaided at 8 months.

    he was crawling at 4months and one week he is now 6 months and 3 weeks and at the rate hes going he might be walking before hes seven months and my doctor said that every time he pulls himself up on something to sit him back down away from wat he used but it just seems to encourage him as he seems to think of it as a game so i stopped doing it

    DS was 7ish months pulling himself up, 8months crawling and 11months to actually walk. So even though he pulled himself up early he still didn't actually walk for a bit later

    All 6 of mine walked between 7 months and 10 months. So I wouldn't worry.

    Remember it usually takes more than a month to go from pulling themselves up to walking.
