DS is now 17 months and still not really walking...I took him to the paed who wanted to do the wait and see approach...that afternoon DS came home and took 5 steps!! He often does this now, he will stand alone, take 2, 3 or 4 steps then drop and crawl or cruise the walls/furniture. He def takes steps, but isnt 'walking, walking' if you know what I mean. However, the little bugger can climb onto the lounge, bed any furniture really and can ride a little bike thing!!!
Is this still okay??

Well, I started to cry reading some posts (Im such a sook today).
My 14month old DS is the last (and oldest) at mums group to walk. He cruises furniture fine but will not stand or walk... he will walk if he hold both my hands and that is it.
I know I should not worry but I just dont want him "left behind"... I am so fearful its a sign of things to come (insert drama queen)...
Thanks guys for calming my fears just a little, I know I need to be patient with this.

One of the bubs in my mums group is now 20months old and not able to walk, but you can see that he has weak legs and cannot even stand by himself (his mum has another paeds appointment today in fact to see what is going on)
So don't worry too much, as long as you can see there is no obvious problem, they'll get there in their own time

Luckily he is now walking, only just started in the last week at the ripe old age of 21.5 months. The first baby to walk in my mothers group did so at 7 months, and the rest were all walking well before DS. I just tried to turn it into a positive that I got to enjoy the "baby" stage for a lot longer
