When the baby starts walking
Each new achievement of the kid is a joy for the parents. It is especially pleasant if a child develops before other children, quickly learns new movements and skills. But it happens the other way around. The kid does not want or can not take the first step, which causes excitement in the parents. If you are interested, when a child starts walking and how to help him with this, then you should get acquainted with this material.
You should calm down and do not panic if your baby deviates from the norm for development. In principle, it does not exist at all. Every person is different from childhood. Therefore, if your child is almost a year old, and not he did not take the first steps, although your child's child went to 8 months, do not worry. Up to a year and a half children have the right not to go, but after 18 months you can go to a doctor.
Thus, the normal age when the child begins to walk is 12 months. Earlier it was earlier development, later - later. But neither one nor the other is an indicator of the disease or underdevelopment of the baby.
How to speed up the process?
Even if you really want to teach a child to walk alone, do not go against physiology. No matter how hard you try, the kid himself will go when his time comes. And you can only frighten him if he suddenly falls.
But you can still help. Approximately in 8-9 months, when the child begins to walk on the bed or by the hand, create in the house all the conditions for his comfortable learning. Put the furniture closer to the aisle, lay a soft blanket or carpet, remove the toys from the floor. You need to arouse the interest of the child so that he himself wants to take steps. To do this, put the baby at one end of the room, and sit in the middle on the floor. Show him your favorite toy or just call him. At first, children begin to creep towards their mother, but gradually begin to take independent steps.
What is not worth doing?
Knowing how much children start walking is not enough. It is important to remember several forbidden moments that can cause significant harm to your baby.
You can not put on your feet early. Many parents believe that if it's too early to start the baby on the legs, it will go faster. The result - the wrong development of feet, flat feet and a violation of posture. Remember that up to 5 months (and preferably up to 6) you can not put children on their feet full weight.
Do not use the walker. Despite the widespread opinion that walkers are an assistant in development, pediatricians deny this. When a child begins to walk in them, he gets used to it. In the future, it will be difficult for him to take steps independently.
You can not force. If you force the child to walk, shout at him and try to teach the individual steps all day, you will not get the expected result. The kid will simply abandon this venture and receive a serious psychological trauma.
And at last it is necessary to tell, that when the child starts to walk independently, serious work is necessary to you. It will be necessary to remove all items dangerous for the baby from the available places for him. You also need to closely monitor it and in case of a fall, support and help.
