standing and walking

Parents often look forward to two things about their baby – the first words, and the first steps.

When your baby works out how to move independently, their whole world changes, and so does yours!  There will be some ups and downs – we’ve made a page about these called what changes with crawling and walking?”

This page has some ideas for how you can help your baby work out how to balance, how to stand and finally how to walk.  Don’t try and rush this- every baby is different and there are no prizes for being the earliest walker.  There are a couple of warning signs for if you might be concerned, and we’ve set those out as well.
