What age did your baby stand to try and 'stand'?

posted 1 decade 5 years ago
I know all kiddies are different.

Jasmine was standing by 9 months and walking confidently on her own by 1 year.

Sophie has no interest in standing at all and if you try and get her to do it she just giggles and pulls her legs up under her or does block splits Halo

I just wondered at what age people here found their little ones were keen to stand.

We have one baby of nearly 9 months in our post-natal group who is now walking! None of us could believe it but she was pulling herself up by 6 months and starting to cruise the furniture! The boys are mostly happy to stand (supported of course) on laps all the time and most are crawling. Sophie also doesn't crawl yet. She pushes herself around backwards (quite funny) and bum shuffles to what she wants Very happy

Vic was also 10 months when he started walking he was crawling very early.Samuel is now 12 months old and only just "worming lol"not even crawling. He has just in the past week started pulling himself up on the chairs and standing.I know all children are different with development so it doesnt worry me at all he will get it in his own time.We also have a 8 month old at swimming that is sterting to walk unaided it looks sureal lol.

I asked my Mum about this and apparently my brother, who is now nearly 40, did not crawl or shuffle or cruise but at 18 months old, having made no effort to move before, got up in the local park and ran off to play football with some other children!!!!!
She was a bit shocked to say the least.

Charlotte could sit up at 3 months (yes was a it of a shock to us too lol), she could pull herself up from 9 months, pretty much after she learned to crawl and began to take her first wobbly steps around her first birthday but was 13 months before she started walking more confidently.

George sat up unaided from 5ish months and learned to crawl properly soon after, before that he'd army crawl lol! George was a lot more independent in his getting up, he preferred to do walking etc on his own steam, he didn't like people helping him. He was around the same age as Charlotte walking.

I've seen an 8 month old running around before, that was just weird lol

James started walking unaided the day before his 1st birthday, but Gem was about 16 months before she walked by herself- she shuffled mostly until then. Jessica has been pushing herself up on my lap for a month or so now, loves to be on her feet! Think she may beat James' record for 1st unaided steps- but I can't imagine her running around at 8 months!! Shocked

My LC was walking confidental on her own by the time she was 11 months She was standing un-supported by 8 months she completely missed trying to stand but then she was and still is a very clever forward little girl.

But my sons were later, RB stood at 12 months and started walking at 13 months again completely missed the training to stand and first steps as his first steps was 12 steps after his mamar-pat and EJ he was the slowest out them all. He tried standing at 12 months, stood un-supported at 14 months, tried walking at 15 months and didn't take is first un-support step until he was nearly 17 months. Again he has done and still does veerything slower than a normal boy of his age and is delaied in all areas of development but I have been reasured this could be a side-effect of his epileptic episodes

my son was 9 months old when he tried to stand.
and could perfectly stand in 10 months.
he also used to take the support of things near him and try to take some steps.

Yes all babies are not same. many child started walking at 10-11 months while some walk at 15 or more. so it depend on there like and other things.

Mine was walking with a stroller a good few months before she could even stand by herself. She stood by herself for the first time at 1 year 1 month at her great grandmother's funeral, so all the attention was on her and she brought light relief to the whole affair. She was walking within about a month after that, there is now no stopping her.
