baby walking

As soon as you notice that your child already has the ability to stand for a long time without falling, he begins to move around the house standing up, holding on to furniture and the wall, and extending his hands for you to walk with him. the other side…he is clearly ready.

But… How can I help him clear up on his own? Write these tips:

  • To help your child stand up, you can use a stool or a small stool. Stand behind it and show your child his favorite doll. You bend slightly, just enough so that your child can catch it if he stands up. Once he gets to where you are (maybe crawling), he’ll use a chair or chair for support to stand up.


  • Allow your child to walk around the house barefoot. This will improve your balance and grip on the ground, giving you more confidence.


  • Use the shopping cart, shopping cart or doll chair so that your child can take a few steps by holding on to it. Kids love to push things. More so if they had wheels! They will feel more secure and trained when it is time to let go.


  • Encouraging their curiosity. By showing him his favorite game, you will make him want to come to you.


  • For him to learn to walk, better put yourself behind him. Give him your hands and raise his arms. Little by little you push them forward and replace your hands with a finger. You are almost done!


  • Teach him the brakes. To do this, let him take a few steps on his own and prevent him from offering one of your fingers on each hand. I let it stay steady and balanced and let it go. You will see how to carry!


As a last tip, a lot of patience. Not all children follow the same rhythm. Some have a harder time than others, so don’t be in too much of a rush to see your baby walk.
