Can I encourage ds to walk in anyway?

DP and I took DD to the park a lot to encourage walking because she didn't like the feel of the grass on her hands.
We also always kept her barefoot so it'd be easier for her and surrounded her by a lot of push toys.
We'd also put really interesting things out of her reach which would totally encourage her to climb up and try and toddle towards them! We'd get her really hyped about a bottle of water or something and then put it out of reach and she'd always be desperate to reach it.
Take care of yourself! Your injury sounds painful - especially in this cold weather!

DD is only 8kg. The doctors aren't concerned but I would have thought more chub = more muscle strength? Obviously it means more weight to carry too though.
Maybe you could try to not carry him at all unless essential? It's important that your arm heals! If he's carried less he'll hopefully be more motivated to walk because it's quicker than crawling.
Is he in daycare? DD started walking because she was copying the kids at daycare.

A trolley or walker he can push around? My DDs gave wooden carts and when they couldn't walk the loved using those.
