When would you say they walk? Isaac 14 months can stand from sitting independently, stand in the middle of the room and eat a snack, take 3/4 steps between objects independently, will walk all day holding your hand, he's just stood from kneeling I said 'come on then' he's took 3 steps and placed himself in a crawling position , I know Clarke say when they take 12 independent steps they are fine for shoes etc but re walking, is he walking or is he just going to tease me forever
what do you class as walking? Btw he actually more or less runs whilst cruising round the furniture , he walks with his buggy and 'behbeeee' and independently takes a step or 2 to go and pat the 'behbeeee' but will either just push the buggy, stand independently or go back to crawling aaaaaaargh!

I think I classed F as a walker when he could walk a number of steps unaided.
Sounds like he's nearly there!

He's been like this for about a month , I specifically rennet being gobsmacked that he ate half a hot x bun stood up unsupported after he'd stood from sitting himself!

My nephew is like this and he is nearly 17 months! if that makes you feel any better? Likes to walk on his knees instead, random.

J did this for about 6 weeks before finally walking at 16 months! I don't think i classed it as walking until it was more walking than falling

Clarksville told us it was 10 or more steps in one go before they were officially walking. It won't be long CP!!

This is exactly what my 13 month old is doing. She's been cruising forever and will take a few steps unaided but then just prefers to crawl. But she's getting incredibly frustrated that she can't run after her big sister.

I count mine as walking once they choose it as their main form of transport lol. Rafferty is still no where near!

Nicky was similar but at 12-13 months, he practically ran round the furniture like Isaac! By 14 months I bought him shoes and I would let him out of the push chair where it was quiet and safe and let him practice so it was from then really that he was properly walking.
