How Soon Will My Baby Start Walking After Standing and Pulling Herself Up?

When your baby begins to pull herself up, it can be an exciting time for her to explore and attempt to walk. As early as 9 months, she may be navigating around furniture, holding on and then letting go to stand for a second or two, says Dr. Jennifer B. Trachtenberg, a New York City-based pediatrician. It can take a week or a month before your little one takes her first steps after pulling up, but on average most babies are walking by 12 to 13 months, says Trachtenberg.
