    I think anywhere from 9 to 18 months is considered "normal". If bub isn't walking by 18 mths you should see your doctor or MCHN for advise.

    My kids walked at 13 mths and 17 mths.

    What is normal varies a lot. In my mothers group of 12.. Some walked at 10months, others scooted, crawled and barely showed any signs until closer to 14months.

    There's a fairly wide range. My oldest took his first steps at 11 months, and my youngest did last month at 9 months. But my nephew took his first recently at 15 months... I would consider all of these 'normal'.

    My dd took her first steps at 15.5 months. She's now nearly 17 months and still isn't really waking around confidently. My MCHN isn't concerned because there is such a wide range for normal.
