    Default Oh my gosh! Almost walking at 7 months!

    I can't believe it - i think DD is almost walking.

    Even at 6 months i would find her standing up in her cot (cheeky monkey), and she will pull herself up to standing to get into things like the toy box, but today i turned around and she was hanging onto the rungs on the safety gate - and then moving her hands onto the next one and stepping along.



    Then i got her the block trolley, and she can walk along with it it i hold it down (it is so light she tips it otherwise).

    Is that freakily abnormal?

    Anyone else got an early almost-walker?? No good can come of this... i used to think it was great when DS reached his milestones, with her i just realise all the extra work it involves

    My sister was walking at 6 months! She was tiny too and all the photos we have of her walking at that age look so strange but so cute.

    Oh yes! I had an early starter too!! Avaleigh loved walking with us holding her hands and then starting walking along with her walker around 7 months and at 9 months she was full on walking - surprised everyone how early she was walking.

    It was great and a lot of fun!

    My ds was crawling at 5.5mths and started cruising the following weekend. Health nurses kept telling me that he'll be walking by 7mths, then 8mths, then 9mths and the latest was 12mths.... pfff He's 10mths now and pushes his walker round, but wont walk (or stand) on his own unless you're holding his hand/s. There's a little boy at mothers group who started walking about 2 wks ago, and he's 10mths.

    It's amazing when they start, isn't it? I can't wait for ds to start, but then again I can.... I want my baby to be a baby while he can!

    What a clever little one she is! Oskar will be 15 months tomorrow and he's only just taken his first unaided steps a week ago! Not that I minded that! However, Joshua walked at 9 months. I think the difference was that Oskar never crawled, he bum shuffles and things to him are at eye level not above like when they crawl, so he never felt inclined to...that's how I think it has been anyway.

    LOL at you thinking no good can come of this Yael. I always knew she would keep you on your toes that girl

    Alister has been cruising for a few months now and is walking along behind his popper bike now by himself - its only a matter of time here now, but I would be more than happy for him to slow down a bit.

    DS was cruising along at six and a half months, first steps alone at 9m, now at 16m he can walk halfway to nursery in the morning (about 1km away).

    You're right, far too much work - why isn't he one of those babies that just stays put when you put them down?

    From what i've heard early crawlers are usually late walkers. Early walkers are usually late crawlers, if they crawl at all!

    I had a crawler at 4.5mths and she walked at 9mths. There are no rules, just children to like to change them
