Hi bubble, Hunter started crawling at 11mnths and is walking alone now at 14mnths. We encouraged it by getting him a wooden trolley to push round and put a brick in it so it wouldnt take off. Took about a month for him to start experimenting by walking from coffee table to couch etc. We also held his hand and walked him to bed or to his high chair etc. Mind you, will be hard if she just doesnt want to Rolling Eyes

All children are different and they will usally start by themselves. i must amit both my children were walking by their first birthday ( obviously a bit wobbly still) My son now walks a lot, like up to the school, to the local shop etc. he has a lot of cofidents and would run away if he could, all i would do is just try and encourage her mybe get a little shopping trolly, or pram to push around the room, and i would say not to put heavy shoes on her until she can walk more confidently, dont push her to much though x

Very Happy xxx
