    Do you have a good GP or baby/child clinic that you go to?

    Maybe just take him for a checkup and they can prob give you some exercises to work on with him.

    Id pop in and see your child and youth health nurse, and see what they suggest! They tend to know all the right people, and all the right places, and im sure they will help you! good luck!

    definitely see a gp or paed.
    not sure what state you are in but in sa we are given blue books when the baby is born and it has immunisations, dr visits etc in there and it states if the baby/child is not walking by 18mths to see a health nurse or doctor.

    My son didn't walk until 19 months, he saw a paediatric physio who determined by was hyper mobile and hypotonic (very flexible, poor muscle tone/strength). Nothing wrong with him cognitively, but he'd learned some 'anti-walking' behaviours, especially because the flexibility in his feet and ankles made standing and walking uncomfortable. We got him special boots (http://www.gilbert-mellish.co.uk/Sho...ootwear/2.aspx - these guys were the cheapest by far, even with express shipping from the UK), did really intensive physio for two weeks, got him into his shoes, and three days later, he was walking. When we saw my gp at 18m, she wasn't too concerned, but I'm so glad we went to the physio. If you're in Sydney, I strongly recommend Debbie at Therapies for Kids (http://www.therapiesforkids.com.au/). Good luck, and don't panic, there are very few healthy children who can't walk :-)
