Your Big Baby and Walking

Do you have a larger-than-average-size baby? Has he or she now shown any signs of getting ready to walk?

Naturally big babies—children who are clearly going to become tall adults—sometimes take a little longer to learn to walk. They just have that much more body to learn to operate.

In addition, larger babies may be a little extra flexible in their joints and ligaments. They simply need to let their muscles grow a little stronger to control their joints and limbs well enough to walk steadily.
