My kids walked at the following ages:
#1 boy- 15.5 months
#2 boy- 17 months
#3 girl- 10 months

I wouldn't worry at this point. The average range for walking is between 9 and 17 months from what I recall, with 9 and 17 being more of the extremes. I swear my boys just had to decide it was worth walking before they started doing it!

Daughter had first son at the pediatric physio when he wasn't walking at about 15 months. Walked at 17 months and is just fine. They have their own timetable but daughter would not listen to me!

My first child is a late walker, maybe 14 months, but she crawled a lot before that. It’s actually better for her brain, the crawling part. She turns out to be brighter than my second child who walked at 13 months.

I won't lie. I get first rate torqued by non-parents who get their knickers in a bunch over things like this. What next?

My first was a late walker (about 18 months) but a really early (and fast) crawler. I wouldn't be worried yet.

I don't think this is a huge deal. Different kids develop at different times. My daughter didn't walk until she was a little over a year. She developed slowly at everything. She still isn't potty trained. At least he's standing...

I didnít walk until I was closer to two. One day I just stood up and walked across the room. The Dr. said I would walk when I was ready and he was right.

Both my son and I walked between 9 and ten months, so I think 14 months is late. I wouldn't worry too much though, at the end of the day we all learn to walk, read and write....unless we have cognitive or physical issues preventing us from doing so. Get that toddler out of the walker!

In the case of you and your son I suspect that's genetic. My older son, who looks me and I both started walking at 10 1/2 months.
