The poll on early walkers was fun and we learned a lot. Thanks to everyone who took time to participate!
I have a friend who thinks her boy is a sure winner when it comes to late walkers, so here’s a new poll for you. Since developmental delays often contribute to late walking, please answer based on your latest non-developmentally delayed child.
Our latest was 15 months. I thought it was pretty unusual at the time, but I was fresh out of my parents’ house where babies walked at 7 months. Now I know that things work a little differently, so don’t be afraid of shocking me. I can take it. Anyway, I still think my friend’s son can totally beat yours in this poll.
If you’re feeling self-conscious for the sake of your child, take heart. Research indicates that children who crawl longer tend to do better in math, spelling, and spatial skills.
