    LO is 14 months yday and still not walking on his own! I'm not worried because he gets all around furniture and walks really steady holding on to something even the tip of my finger! He stands unsupported too! But a friend said the other day he walks with one of his feet turned out! I'd not noticed (feel terrible) but when I've looked it's only slightly turned out! Should I be worried? Thanks x

    When my lo was first learning to walk and using her walker to push around I notices her right foot turned out and dragged on the floor! I just left her to it and didn't get her shoes for a while to let her feet do what they wanted and now she's walking fine and her feet are perfectly straight.

    Just keep an eye on it but I'd say it's perfectly normal. I guess they're so concerned with learning to walk they're not concerned with what their feet are doing lol. :)

    I know babies that haven't walked till 18months or more they will do it in Their own time try not to worry. if he is standing and walking along furniture you probably won't be waiting much longer was a couple of months of doing that before Ewan took steps on his own. Talk to your health visitor if concerned. x

    Lizzie still isn't walking either, and has been walking holding on to things since about 9 months! I remember my childminder saying at 10 months 'oh I reckon she'll be walking soon, any day now'...and she said the exact same thing the other day lol! She literally just places her hand against something when she's walking, so doesn't even need the support - she's just to scared to let go :lol:
    I have also noticed Lizzie walks on tip toes a lot of the time and only walks with flat feet if she has shoes on!
