Question: My daughter is 13 months not yet walking... She takes five steps and then crawls.if i try making her walk she cries.totally worried
Baby is taking 2 3 steps that means he does not want to walk much. There are many things u can try like getting him pulling toys that will get him interested u can get him his favorite snack n walk so he can follow. Usually babies are scared of falling so take ur baby on ur bed n try playing so even whn he falls he won't hurt so he ll have more courage to walk. Take him to the park wr there are alot of kids that will give him courage. Encourage ur baby by clapping and calling a wow baby so he ll walk to get more.
Question: My daughter is one year old. She is crawling, sitting but not standing without support. She will stand but needs support. Is it delay in walking? And nearly what time she will take for walking?
Answer: I can understand your worry as almost all baby start walking by 12th month. But instead of getting tensed take charge of things. its a good sign that your baby walks with support this means that he is on right part, it's just that he his lacking the confidence to walk all by himself.
First, give plenty of floor time to your baby so that he gets to explore his body. Don't make him spend much time in rockers, car seats, stroller etc. This makes baby dependant.
Second, Motivate baby to walk towards you by luring him with his favourite food, toy object etc.
Third, When your baby us standing, place objects at his knee level so that he has to squat to get them. Squatting helps in strengthening hip and leg muscles thus promoting more stability on feet.
Fourth, Help your baby walk with you by holding her by his trunk for first few days, once hus posture is corrected you can hold her both hands and help her walk. this exercise should be done very gently and patiently. Make sure you let baby take steps on her own just hold her hands for support , you don't need to drag her to be able to walk.
Fifth, Whenever she stands or takes a step by herself make it a big deal. Hoot,clap, whistle this will encourage child to walk more and boost her confidence.
Apart from all this do get your baby checked by his paediatrician once so that chances if any underlying problwm could be eliminated.
