    Default Not getting up but walking

    DD is 15 months. She's been late in her gross motor skills and never crawled but bum shuffles. She can cruise around furniture but only pulls herself up at home. She walks holding one hand and will cruise around things if I stand her up when out and about. She seems to find getting up the hard bit and can't be bothered most of the time. I'm wondering if she will learn the getting up bit after and will walk from being stood up by us? She loves walking but not sure if this is the right way to learn?

    I don't know about pulling up, but DS was walking before he figured out how to stand up without any help. I think he started pulling up at 9 months, walking (not well) at 12 months, but he was almost 13 months old before he could stand up without having to pull himself up on something.

    Not sure if that answers your question, sorry.

    DS was the same. Never crawled, always bum shuffled then started cruising around on things at home, holding my hand when out, until he just suddenly stood up on his own and walked at 17 months. It's like it suddenly clicked. From that day on, he walked everywhere. I stressed like mad about it and did everything I could to encourage him to walk on his own earlier but in the end I don't think anything really helped. He just did it once he felt ready. I'm sure it's only a matter of time for your DD!

    Thank you bitterpure. We've had her checked with physio and all is fine. Im impatient, plus I'm sick of everyone asking me if she's waking yet too. She looks like a two year old too

    If she's a bigger bub, that would be another reason why she's slow to walk - the heaviest baby in my mother's group was the last to walk.

    Every time I start one of these threads she always proves me wrong.... Today she stood up twice while we were out. And I let go of her hand and she stood there unsupported for like 30 seconds!

    Always the way! DS stood up the very next day after I had him checked over by the paed! Good luck - now the fun really begins
