    Hi All,

    My 14th month old DD is yet to walk and off late this is worrying me a bit. She is quite active otherwise.
    Crawls all around the house, stands by holding furniture and walks sideways holding cot. She stands on her own without any support for max 30 seconds. She bounces sitting on her knees. All these developments happened post her birthday within these two months. But when I hold her and try to make her walk, she doesn't put her leg forward at all and sits down immediately. While I see babies of her age walking, I am very much concerned about it. Please let me know if there is anything I can do about it.

    Hi Preethi

    Don't worry my DD started walking only after 15 months .Milestones differ and as lonf as she is walking sideways nothing to worry. I think she might need some more strength in her legs to walk.

    Concentrate on giving foods like Ragi porridge or Manna health mix porridge. If you are still giving her baby cereals even now.. then its high time you stop them.

    Take her in a pram to park or allow her to see 2-3 yrs kids playing. seeing them she would have the urge to walk and run like them. :)


    All that you have to do is just wait for it. :grinning:

    Sarajara,

    I give Ragi porridge as breakfast in the most. She is given cerelac once a day in the evening around 5. PM. Can I replace it by Manna health mix? And may I know why should we stop giving cerelac to her?

    Preethi,

    No worries, each baby is different....we have one cycle with 2 wheels which will move on pushing...give her that.....she will get practice

    @preeti6years

    Why don't you ask her Paediatrician this question? Once the doctor rules out physical problems, there is nothing to worry. Unnecessary worries lead you nowhere; take proactive steps.

    Dear preeti6years,
    My DS started walking at 14.5 months.So don't worry...Try to include more calcium food in her diet like eggs,Curd,Yogurt etc.
    First she needs to stand firmly without any support for few seconds so that she can move her legs and take little steps ahead.

    Ammu,
    Yes we are giving her curd atleast once in a day.
    She is trying to stand without any support but not for more than 30 seconds.
    Earlier she used to stand holding only sofa, but she holds wall and stands.
    She just buckles off when I try to make her walk.

    Dear Preethi,
    Both my kids started walking after 15 months. If possible apply lakshadi Ayurveda oil on the legs and make ur kid play in the walker for 10 to 20 minutes everyday.

    Give her leg massage daily 2 times.
    Encourage her when she is standing , ask her to walk keep saying that .
    Maybe she fell down upon first walk got scared...
    Worrying comparing will lead you anxious.
    If you have grill gate make her walk by holding them. With both hands support.
    She will run sooner than you think
