Default When did your premature infant start walking? – 01-04-2009, 11:09 AM

Hello people. Um I have twin 23 month olds that were born at 32 weeks. My son is already walking, but my daughter won’t take many steps while holding my hands and is afraid to let go to walk on her own. So I’m curious how long it took anyone else’s premature baby/infant to start walking.Yes her doc has had all kinds of tests done. Plus my twins have physical, occupational, and speech therapy every week.

this is really normal. My daughter was only 2 weeks early and it took her to 14 months to walk. she’ll get it. walking is a totally natural occurance

My oldest daughter was a 28 weeker, weighing 2 lbs. She did not walk until she was around 18 months old. My youngest daughter, who was a 35 weeker, walked at around 1 year old.

My 1st baby was born at 33 wks. If I remember right, he started to take steps at around 13 mos, but didn’t really have walking"down"until around 14 mos.Your children were born 2 mos early so they should be around 2 mos behind the average milestones. But since yours were twins, they were probably born smaller than average, so maybe they’ll be 3-4 mos behind.I would think that at 23 mos they should both be walking. Is your doctor concerned about your daughter not walking yet? You should talk to him about it. Some children have an imbalance within their ears that causes them not to walk – I can’t remember what it’s called, but by now I would think your doc would have her checked for that. Being 1 month away from 2 yrs old&still not walking, I would consider to be behind.

I think alot of babies do this. Erika didn’t, but she didn’t start cruising until she was about 11 months, and didn’t walk until she was 15 months. Her balance was terrible, and at 17 months it still is. But she’s had chronic ear infections since she was 13 months.
