When is the right time to start? Can I teach him to walk before the baby crawlswith four?

C L says:

I was 9 months old when I got up took me 3 days to go from crawling to running. Pretty sure my mum used this method. She also took me swimming.

Hey Emma,
Your videos are so helpful. As a first time mother and not having anyone to guide me you were like a shinning star. Thank you
I wanted to ask you about playpen. What do you think about it. Are they good?
My 11 month old is very active. Often he gets in things which are dangerous for him. I wamted to buy something to create a save place for him like a yes space where he can touch anything

Ronaldo Reese says:

I and my wife want to say that this learning program is absolutely amazing Childent.Study We especially like the fact that our kids can record themselves sounding out the words. We also love that the program teaches beginning, middle, and end sounds, so that the little learners can see and hear how a letter and its sound can be used in different places of a word.

My baby is only 4 and half month. But he likes to step out his foot with my support. Is it okay to do so? He roll over with small support and has good neck balance

Priscilla Hammond says:

My baby is about to be 13 months and does not want to pull up past his knees and cries when you help prop him up to stand. I don't know if there is something medically wrong or if he just really doesn't want to walk. We had his one year check but I didn't get much feedback other than waiting. Any thoughts? Is this concerning?

Toju Oyor says:

Thank you so much for this, it’s very enlightening and refreshing to watch❤️

Danielsgirl389 says:

My 1yr old has been standing independently for 3mo now & still cries when attempting to walk. I’ve been doing all of the “do’s” suggested. I became worried & checked with any inner issues I wasn’t aware of with her Pediatrician. Her Dr says she’s fine -just stubborn. Help!

Pale Princess says:

Gutted we can’t use the push walkers for our boy because he’s particularly tall so has to slouch over to use them.. not sure how else we can encourage him to walk instead of cruise without holding his hands!

Jyoti Arora says:

Very helpful thank you

Melly Who says:

Is there a reason you encourage push walkers? Everything I've read says they're unsafe.
