|It’s my baby’s first birthday next week and a
few people have expressed surprise that she isn’t walking
yet. Should I be concerned?
If only all that well meaning interference was a little
more constructive. Your baby will walk when she is ready.
That’s the truth. So some babies are walking well
by their first birthday, while others take months more.
Actually, the majority of babies walk after their first
birthday. If your baby is doing well physically, and your
doctor has seen the baby at the one year check up, then
walking is an activity that your baby is still working towards.
Whatever anyone says to you, the fact is that walking age
is not an indicator of intelligence or physical ability.
There is no correlation at all.
