Most of children know how to walk by the time they are 13 months old, some know sooner (9-10 months old), some know later (15-16 months old).

There’re many parents obsessed with questions of other people: “Does the baby walk?” or the fact that their children start walking later than others. The moment when babies take their first step is different from each other but often around 9-15 months old.

1.    The moment when children start walking is different

2.    Three stages of practicing walking in children

Sitting: at about 6 months old, limb muscles are ready for children to start sitting.

Upholding the body with hands and raising the behind up: it’s different between children often happens when children reach 10 months old.

Standing with hands facing on a chair: The time children start standing with their hands facing object to uphold the body is different among children. It starts with the curiosity in subjects surrounding children, and naturally, they lean up and press their hands on the subjects, beginning learning how to stand.

3.    The first steps

The first steps happen when children are able to lift a leg and lean it in the front while the other is standing still for the balance. Of course, at the beginning, children need help from parents.

To be well in walking, it’s required that the muscles are firm enough, and babies need to know how to loose the hip and knees. The most difficult matter that children have to face when starting walking is that children often strain the knees while walking, which makes them fail in keeping balance. Therefore, they tend to fall or walk vacillatingly.

4.    When children know how to walk…

It sounds mythical but some parents misunderstand that the fact that their children know how to walk sooner than other same-ages relates to the fact that the children will have better learning results. Knowing how to walk soon or late may affect children’s developments, according to which parents should take children to a doctor if they don’t walk when 16 months old. However, the connection between the sooner success in walking and being a genius is still unrevealed. There’re some children that can walk well while others keep failing. There’re children who take lots of time before knowing how to walk, so it’s completely normal.

5.    Facts that affect children’s practicing walking

Weight: Overweight children often start walking later than others as they have to face more difficulties in keeping the balance while standing than children who have normal weight.

Ear infections: If your children are about 6 months old or older but still don’t know how to walk, you may want to consider that the children are having diseases. Ear infections can affect the ability of balancing the body, making children unable to walk.

Siblings: Children who learn walking with their siblings often take less time to walk well. That’s because generally children tend to imitate things, so by the attempt to play with their siblings, children will be fond of walking.

6.    Sometimes, children get back to crawling

Many children like combining the crawling with learning to walk. When they toddle, they suddenly stop and turn to crawling. Parents do not need to worry as at the first stage of practicing walking, children are unable to differentiate walking and crawling.

If seeing something interesting, they are immediately attracted and turn to crawling quickly to run after it. Maybe they are thinking that walking is too slow and crawling is faster. 

7.    Having difficulty stopping walking

The next challenge of practicing walking is how to stop walking so as not to fall. Most of children who start walking fall when they stop walking. In comparison to adults, a step of children need an extreme strength because they haven’t been able to fold knees, combine the movements of heels and toes. Besides, children haven’t known that they need to stop a leg and replace the other at balanced position to make the stop complete.

8.    Let children learn to walk with bare feet

Bare feet help children walk easier than ones wearing shoes as they help children contact directly with floor (ground). If children succeed in walking with bare feet on surfaces that are not so safe, parents should let them get used to walking with shoes. You should choose shoes that provide children with flexibility by curving the shoes. If the shoes have good elastic material, they are suitable ones.
