At the grand old age of 13 and a half months, Rosie is heading in the direction of being slow to walk. At her 13 month check they flagged this up which frankly I think is ridiculous as she is definately not yet behind. At 18 months I might be starting to think she is behind but not yet.
However I would quite like her to learn to walk; it’s getting harder lifting her and carrying her and if she could put one foot in front of another herself that would take the weight off. Literally. We are encouraging her to come down from her tip toes – she understands the request “on your flat feet please!” and drops down accordingly, and other than that we are encouraging her to walk between our legs as much as possible. She is a really proficient crawler and so gets about brilliantly.
Have you got any tips of other things we should do to help her practice?
