DS was 8 months and DD was 10 months
They were just ready I guess. We didn't do anything in particular to encourage/discourage them.

DS1 was 13months, DS2 was 10months, I "encouraged" them I guess but not using walkers or holding theire hands and having them walk next to me, but when they would cruise along furniture I would be close by and encourage them to try walk to me, sometimes they would try take a couple of steps other times they were totally uninterested, i don't think it helped speed up there walking though. DS1 was cruising along furniture since he was 8ish months, but it wasn't until one day he was sitting in the middle of the room and randomly pushed himself up to standing and started walking, i was ike wtf DS2 was different and started taking his first steps while holding onto furniture and he one day he just let go and started walking, it actually took him a week or so after to teach him self to stand unaided and walk.

DS1, first steps about 11 months, walking unassisted about 13 months
DD1, first steps about 12 mths, walking at 13mths
DD2 first steps about 13mths, walking 14 mths,
DS 2, never did the first steps, just started walking at 9 mths!!! he just watched his older siblings, and then one day took off. He could run two weeks later. Never had any 'walker' or baby push along things. They all just walked when they were ready. Marie.

DS is almost 22 months and has only just started walking. Believe me, we tried EVERYTHING to encourage him, but I really believe in the absence of a developmental delay, they will walk when they are ready.

18 months and I doubt I could have encouraged her to walk any earlier, she just had no interest

DS is nearly 17 months and not walking on his own yet. He cruises a lot and will walk if you hold onto his hands. Not interested in pushing his walker at all. His primary method of movement is bum shuffling which he is extremely efficient at!

DS took his first independent steps ar 10 months, and was walking properly by 11 months. He is now running at 13 months, much to the pet's dismay. Its strange how you can't wait until they walk, and then wish they would go back to sitting in their pram in such a short space of time!

DD started cruising at 6 months but wasn't exclusively walking (no crawling at all) till 10-11 months.
