When did your baby first start to walk unsupported? I earlier thought the average age was 12 months but now I hear the average age is around 10 months. I first walked on my first birthday and so did my older son. My younger one who is 10 months has started taking a few baby steps...but not really walking unsupported...he can walk when I hold on to one hand. Sometimes he unknowingly takes a few steps unsupported. What about your babies...when did they first start to walk? Did you have your handycam ready and take a video?

My son took a few unsupported steps right before he turned 1, and didn't ever even try again until he was 16 months old. Kids are all very different and develop at such different rates. My son was a slow walker, but an early talker. He was putting together simple sentences before he was even a year old. I didn't tape his first steps. But I do have some video of him walking when he was 16 months old.

My daughter's lungs collapsed after her birth leaving her with a mild brain damage. She walked on her birthday and never again until 15mo. I've worked with lots of toddlers..They walk when they're ready.

My son was 1 year and 3 weeks old when he started walking with no suport at all. He was about 6 months when he started to walk with suport and we put him in walker as he kept turning and trying to walk every chance he had so we cleared the room and let him walk around. I cant remember if we have his first steps on camera but man we had the camera in his face all day every day so he had enough.

My son first walked a week after his first birthday, and great granny was there with her camcorder. I really don't worry too much about averages, as babies and toddlers all develop differently. My son was also teased by my in-laws because he didn't really start talking 'by the time he should be', but he is now nearly five, very intelligent and won't shut up, lol!

My first one started to walk her self when she was not even nine months old. But the youngest, started to walk later when he was fourteen months old. Well, we know that it is not always the same. Every child is different. But so far, I'm happy because my children are healthy.

It is different with every child. My oldest daughter was walking at 8 months old, and the rest was between 10 months - 12 months. When I say walking I am talking about unsupported walking at that age.
