my son is now 15 months still not started walking. what can i do? he is 7 month premature baby.
Hi Swetha, You son is totally normal. I understand how you feel though. My daughter just started walking at 15.5 months. She was slow with all of her physical milestones. At 12 months, her Dr. sent us to physical therapy, which was incredibly scarey to me. The PT told us that she was totally normal and that she would walk when she was ready. So, that was our first and last visit. One night after dinner, she was cruising around the furniture and then just let go and started walking, practically running. It was SOOO exciting. Looking back, I feel like I was lucky to have a late walker. She was more baby-like for longer. Now, she is a full-blown toddler, with things to do and places to go. And remember, it is totally normal for kids to walk from 12-18 months.

All kids are different - She/ he is very cautious and prefers to hold your hand. Don't stress - it's perfectly healthy for some kids to wait until they are are 18 months to walk.I wouldn't be too worried. I read the other day that some don't walk until they're 17 months. If you're very worried you could always take him in for a checkup and ask the doctor about it. The doc could tell you if there's anything to be concerned about and you'd feel a whole lot better probably after you find out it's pretty common.

Hence don't worry. All the best! thank you!
