Almost walking!! 11 months

LO will be 1 in just 2 more weeks, but he still doesn't seem very interested in walking! I think he is capable, just doesn't want to try. 

I don't want to force him but I do want to encourage him. What is the best way to do that?

He has been cruising for 3+ months, I would say, and crawling since 7 months. And he has even taken 2 solo steps, not in order and he fell down right after lol.

When did your LO start walking??

  • My LO started walking today! His bday is next week. He's been cruising for a few months now. And what I think helped was taking him to play dates with walkers! He did not like being left out. 
  • DS has been walking now for 2 weeks, he had 2 walkers that he loved and was practically running with them.  I felt he was getting used to walking with that so I finally took them away and once I did he made more of an effort to walk on his own. &nbsp

  • DD took her first steps at 11.5 months.  We walked her around holding her hands all the time and got her a push walker.

  • DD is 9.5 months and she's walking behind push toys.  I'm so scared that she's going to walk for real.  I totally don't understand the desire to rush walking.  I'd be happy if they stayed crawling until atleast 18months.

    My child was determined to walk.  She constantly worked on it on her own.  Kind of drove me nuts.  She took her official first step at 8 1/2 months.  But, I'd say she was walking very well, and had eliminated crawling all together, by
