Ready! Set! GO!! Taking those first steps is one of the milestones parents look forward to the most, and with good reason. Cruising, walking with support, and independent walking are the last steps (literally) between babyhood and toddlerhood.
Although some babies are keen to get running earlier than others, the average age to walk independently is between 9 and 18 months, so don’t stress if your baby’s not there yet. But if you feel your baby is showing signs of walking, you can do a few fun things to help him along.
Walking, like any other milestone, should not be rushed. Not only does your baby need to have reached his pre-walking milestones, but he also needs to be physically, mentally and cognitively ready for this change.
Your baby will be walking for the rest of his life, so enjoy having your little crawling baby around for a little bit longer.
