When did your preemie walk?

Postby shrimpsey » Fri Jan 06, 2012 6:29 pm

Hi Mommas,

I was just wondering when your prems walked? Meghan and Molly are just about 17 months old (15 months corrected) and are not walking yet. I am not really concerned, more curious as to what seems to be the norm. They are cruising, and walking holding the push cart, or my hand, and they will walk holding one hand, but they just don't seem to have that balance down to walk on their own.

So, share your learning to walk experiences please! Thanks :)

my boys were each only 3 weeks 1 day early so not real premies ... but the older one didn't start walking until he was 17 months (until that point he'd cruise but never would even try walking holding to my hand or anything like that) and the younger one started at 15 months (also cruised but wouldn't walk or stand with assistance at all) ... I didn't start walking until 18 months so I guess it runs in our family :)

My son was born 10 weeks early and started walking at 18 months (actual age). He didn't do much cruising or anything he basically just took like 5 steps then 20 then by the next day he was pretty much running!

Bracey started at 13 months, so 10 corrected, but she was severly delayed in speech. Seems with prems, usually one thing is delayed
