My daughter turned 2 at the end of April and still isn’t walking unassisted.
What’s weird is she’ll do everything else you’d expect: she’ll walk if someone holds her hands; she’ll use her walker and can even steer it around turns; she can climb up and down a whole flight of stairs; she’ll pull herself up and cruise along the furniture.
So it doesn’t seem like there’s a physical problem. But she’s been doing all these things for months and still hasn’t progressed to walking unassisted, or even really attempting to. If we try to get her to walk on her own, she immediately drops to the floor. We’ve tried tricking her by having her hold onto detached objects (which worked on my other daughter), or by putting something just out of her reach when she’s standing up against the furniture, but she doesn’t fall for it.
She seems developmentally normal in other ways, too: naming objects, saying words and simple phrases (“bye bye Daddy,” etc.), identifying people, mimicking what other people do, etc. She sleeps well, eats well, etc.
We’re hoping it’s just the type of thing where one day she’ll just start doing it all of a sudden – she did the same thing with solid food – but given that she’s 2, it’s unusual and a little unsettling...
