One of those simple things that make parents feel very proud about their great parenting is the quick age when their baby starts walking. Parents feel very proud boasting about their child’s quick progress. However every child is different and some start pretty late compared to others; especially if there was prematurity involved in your child then he or she will take even more time to develop such a complicated skill such as walking. Usually, babies by their first birthday or latest by their eighteenth month start attempting to walk, however the really slow ones will simply try to stand upright at this age. Although it is entirely your child’s decision when he or she decides to walk, there are some things that you can do to assist your child as well and there are also some things that you should not do.
