Should I be concerned that my son isn't walking yet?

My son just turned one, at his check-up the doctor asked if he was walking yet, which he isn’t. I stated my son like to sometimes walk or stand on his tippy toes, the doctor checked up out his ankles and said there was a little resistance and now is referring us to an orthopedic specialist. Doctor said not to worry. I know all babies are different and walk when they are ready.Any other mommy’s had something similar? Or advice to help my son walk?

At 12 months I wouldn’t worry one of my children were walking at 11 months and my other was 14 months. Just keep encouraging and standing him to to get confidence

When my 15 year old daughter was little she didn’t walk until about 18 months but her twin brother was walking at 12 months. I did have her checked up had xrays and even had help me grow involved. She was just slow. Her twin brother did everything for her. My 8 year old when he was younger he started walking at about 12-13 months. As long as you get it checked out and nothing is wrong it helps you feel better just knowing.

My son is almost 15 months and doesn’t walk alone but does holding on to furniture or holding hands. He tries to stand up from a sitting position and falls.

It’s not one size fits all he will do it when he’s ready.

Wouldn’t worry but definitely worth the check to avoid problems down the line

I wouldn’t worry at 12 months.

My 1st- 71/2 months, my 2nd- walked at 18 months alone but still perfected to be carried or in a stroller

my oldest started walking about at almost 13 mths , my middle was 9mths and my youngest about the same as the oldest.

Not all babies walk before 1 don’t worry

They are all different. 1st was running at 9mo. Then twins… One waked at 11 mo. The other at 13 mo.
