My youngest son was 7 weeks early and he walked at 10 1/2 months , he did pretty much everything around when you would expect a baby to except smile for some reason he didn't do that until 11 weeks He was a good weight though and thrived from the start x

Maybe you'll get some answers when you see the consultant about her hips , I know my son was the exception to the rule when it comes to prem babies but he was 5lbs 12oz at birth and I think that really helped , made him a bit stronger . My sis has a son who didn't walk unaided until nearly 18 months though and he wasn't prem . FX her hips are fine x

Laura, my ds was 30wks early and 2lbs 11oz and he didnt walk until he was 14-15 months and stopped then cause he couldnt be bothered for another few weeks!
All kids develop at different rates, wether prems or not. You cant really compair one off the other. She will walk when she is ready!

thanx for all ur posts.
yer still waiting to hear frm consultant hate not knowing things.
i no she will walk when she is ready and no amount of worrying is gonna change that. but i just cant help worrying.
i think once i know if her hips are ok or not then we can get hips sorted if theres somet wrong or if not continue with physio and she will walk wen ready.
im sure i will be updating this post shortly saying 'shes walking everywhere into everything i dont get a minutes peace lol'

Post subject: Re: Advise
Commonly baby start move on after 15 months.but some time they take more than two year ,so there is no need to be worried.
Relieved to hear this as my two are 13 months and were born at 31 weeks and one is only just trying to pull himself up holding onto furniture while the other just gets about by lying on his back and pushing with his legs. It feels at the moment like they'll never walk and have really been worrying that something is wrong with them.

well i take bak wot i sed on my last post coz now luks like georgia wont be walking for a while yet:(
She has not stood up alone agen so think it was a fluke.
she needs some special boots to help her weight bear properly so she can stand and eventually walk.
jennaxhx - i wouldnt worry yet ur boys still have plenty of time if there only 13 months.
