WHEN BABY START WALKING ?

WHEN BABY START WALKING ?
Illustration
Baby have some development day to day, one of thier milestones is when the baby start to walk. Usually they start holding the wall or furniture to help her/him to walk sideways from 8 until 12 months old. After that they will start walking from 10 to 15 months. But not every baby have the same time to start walk, it depend of many things.

At baby condition, brain have 2 different system controlled to walking. They are 'the motor' and 'sensor' system. These system control leg movements and maintain the posture also help to balance for walking respectively. Your baby's body then awaits basic changes in body proportion - the legs grow longer, shoulders broaden, and the head smaller - making it easier to balance in an upright posture.

Time when baby start to walk also depend on the practice. The baby should try many times of standing, cruissing and walking with some type of support before baby have the strength and body balance to walk by thier own. For some littlies, to be up on their feet is achievement enough; for others, putting one foot in front of the other is a goal that they won’t rest without reaching.

While the baby start trying to walk, we should always assist the baby to avoid accident that make baby hurt and worry to try walking again. Some of little fall, stumble and slip will make baby learn to make it more careful, so the baby will know how to balance the body.

When the baby confidence grows, he will rather like the idea of moving around the furniture to reach certain goals, like moving towards a brightly colored ball on the sofa, or his favorite toy on the coffee table. Have Grandma crouch, arms outstretched, calling your child and he’s likely to set off on a path to reach her. Falling down is par for the course so don’t worry.

Do not use Baby walkers
When using baby walker, The baby's legs are not straight when "walking" in the walker. Contraptions made of seats with wheels and a frame are not the best tools to help your child to walk earlier. Yes, it is very fun and it also very cute to see your baby zooming around the floor on wheels, but walkers can actually hinder a child’s natural progression towards walking. Babies who use walkers tend to rely on them for balance and movement, and the results is that the muscles they need for walking are not as well developed. Walkers are also responsible for thousands of child injuries across the United States each year, so use with extreme caution.

The design of Most walkers make the babies can not able to see their feet while walking. This can slow down development of movement as they are unable to make mental connection that it is their legs and feet that are moving the walker.

The baby's legs are not straight when "walking" in the walker. The hips and knees are bent and he will tend to walk on tiptoe. This causes him to use and develop the wrong leg muscles for walking. Such abnormal walking pattern may be difficult to correct even when he is out of the walker.

Barefoot
Nature provided us with padded soles on our feet, and toes to help keep our balance. Putting shoes on a child learning to walk is anything but natural, so avoid if possible. Also let your child get used to different surfaces such as grass, carpet, wood and sand. It keeps things fun and interesting.

Less Hand holding
It might seem like the best way to help your child, but holding his hand actually offsets his balance. Try holding him around the torso to keep him upright.

Interaction
Learning to walk is thrilling for a little child. A whole new world opens up when he can be upright and he will see his environment from a brand new perspective. Delight in his excitement. Spend lots of time giving him the confidence to pull himself up and make his foot movements and when he falls over, laugh playfully and encourage him to try again.

Your one year old will be into everything once he’s up on his feet. As exciting as his milestone will be, you may just find yourself longing for the time when he stayed put for a bit longer!
