Not Walking at 15 Months

Q: “Our son is nearly 16 months old. He has been ‘cruising’ with ease for several months, but he won’t let go. When he walks with us, he still wraps each of his hands around our fingers. Should we be concerned?”

A: While many children take their first steps on their own by about 12-15 months, the pace of development varies widely during the toddler years. This isn’t necessarily a problem for your son as long as he’s reaching other milestones in motor and language/social development. Talk to your child’s healthcare provider about your concerns.
