Common "Baby Walking" queries answered by top doctors | iCliniq

Baby Walking

Baby walking is initiated by strengthening the muscles to take their first steps. Babies start to crawl between the age of 6 and 13 months. At the period of 9 to 12 months, the baby tries to stand. At the age of 8 to 18 months, they begin to walk for the first time. If the baby cannot take steps beyond 18 months, it is necessary to consult a pediatrician to check its development.
