Mason did not walk until he was 18 months old which is still within normal range for walking. We were seeing PT at the time but he just needed to do things on his own time. Our PT told us to put some weights on the walking toys so they don't move as fast and that helped Mason feel more secure with them. It wouldn't hurt to talk to your doctor and maybe even see a PT just to make sure there is nothing that needs addressed, I know that would make me feel better. Mason is still a little behind in gross motor, but not by much!

Update and some questions concering walking

Postby mommy1st » Sun Feb 07, 2010 05:51 pm

Hi all!!

It's been awhile sinec I've posted. I have been lerking just not replying.
Anyhow, we are doing great. Alexa just turned 14 months(sob, sob!). Braden is in preschool and loving it!! He just recently got diagnosed with high functioning aspergers so we are dealing with that and learning all we can to better help him down the road.

Anyhow, I have a question for you about walking. Alexa isn't walking yet and it's starting to concern me. Braden didn't walk til he was 15.5 months old but at this point he was already standing alone and if we held his hand he would walk with us, she is doing none of this!! She won't use any of the push toys we have but she will scoot on the furniture. I just don't know how else to encourage her to start to walk. At first I wasn't worried because I felt that once she did walk I would be regretting it(lol!). Now I'm getting worried. We do go on Tuesday for a checkup(she had 2 bad ear infections so the dr. is making sure they are gone) so I am going to ask then and if she needs'PT or something.
What do you all think? Have any of you had this before with your kiddo'(s) and what happened?

So dr.'s appt went fine, her ears looks great and we decided to not do tubes unless she gets another real soon just because it's a surgery and the risk of her being young. I asked about her walking and he said that she still has a couple months(18 months of age) and that if she's not walking by then then we can go from there. He said that as long as she is cruising along furntiure we are good and that some babies are just lazy, lol. He said to keep practicing with her at home and eventually she will do it. I did order the baby walking wings and they are suppose to get her on Friday so it'll be intersting to see if those work for her.
Thanks again for all the advice and input you all are great!!
