What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

In the last two weeks dd has learned to pull up, cruise and is now trying to stand without support. She's actually pretty good at it, but gets so excited and waves her arms so she falls. It just seems like trying to walk is what comes next. She's only 7 1/2 months old. I thought she would be a "baby" longer. :insert pouting: Anyone else have a baby in a hurry to be a big girl? Or a baby that walked early?

Re: What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

not me - dd walked unassisted at about 11-11.5 months, but i really thought she was going to start a lot sooner when she learned to crawl and pull up/cruise in the space of a couple weeks at 7.5-8 months. not to say that your kiddo won't walk early, but i know i was surprised at how fast she learned to cruise after crawling.

i have heard of walkers at 9ish months not too uncommonly.

My mother swears I walked at 7 months!

My youngest child started walking/running/climbing unaided at 9 months and hasn't stopped for one second!

Re: What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

My oldest walked at 8.5 months. He rolled at 4 months, crawled at 5 months, sat up at 6 months.

Just to make up for it, my youngest didn't walk until almost 17 months; and she was rolling at 2 months, crawling at 6 months, and then didn't progress for a long time. I don't think she stood unassisted until just before she started walking.

Re: What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

Both of mine walked "early". DD was a few days short of 10 mths and my ds was 7 mths & 3 wks. I cried when they both started to pull up on things because I knew it wouldn't be long before they were EVERYWHERE. My ds started pulling himself up to stand at 6.5 mths. No one believed me when I told them. They had to come over to see it with their own eyes.

I have to believe your, mama, L!

I am friends with the director of Grace's daycare and you can imagine how many children she has seen through the years (her family owns it). She says there was a baby there that walked at 6 months

Re: What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

DS was taking steps shortly after 8 months, and really walking well at 9 months.

DD on the other hand, is nearly 14 months and isn't even really standing much on her own (holding on to things, but just not alone).

Re: What is the youngest anyones dc has ever walked?

My first crawled at 5, pulled up at 6, and walked along furniture at 7...he could transfer short distances (like, couch to coffee table) but didn't let go of the furniture until 10mo...I think it has to do with how heavy he was! He was a huge baby

My second was later. Crawling 7-8mo and pulling up 8-9mo and then he was walking intermittently 9-10mo..and then walking for good at 10-11mo. Now he'll be 1 on Tuesday and he walks all the time (doesn't crawl at all anymore), but he does kind of fall a lot.
