What milestones has your 15-month-old hit?

My little boy will be ten months on the 15th, and I was wondering what milestones your little ones had already hit. My son doesn’t want to crawl, wave bye-bye, clap his hands, or even pull himself up. He can’t stand on his own. Someone has to be behind him, or he just lets himself go. We work with him every day, and the daycare he also goes to try to help him. He’s my first baby and Idk if I should be worried that he’s not doing some of the things that other babies his age are doing.

He’s only 10 months. He will do things when he’s ready.

Talk with your pediatrician sounds like he’s in need of early intervention. I would be concerned

My youngest didn’t crawl until the day after her first birthday. And maybe started walking like six months after that if that. I don’t remember exactly. Honestly all kids develop at their own pace. Some of them just don’t have any interest in doing stuff. He will get their when he’s ready, but if your concerned take him to the pediatrician.

15 months or 10 months? If 10 I wouldn’t be worried at all. In fact I wouldn’t worry until at least 18 months. Not all babies crawl, some go right to walking/standing. All babies go at their own pace

Talk to your pediatrician

I’ve known kiddos that weren’t walking by their 1st bday. It shocked me tbh but I continued to watch those kids grow & they’re fine. Mine were crawling by 7 months and walking by 9. Didnt get a single tooth for 11 months then 4 in one weekend. Running around like crazy at 1st birthdays with full on pigtails. Moral of the story. Every kiddo is different. Talk to your pediatrician. :heart:

My oldest son took his sweet time hitting milestones. He was 15 months before he started walking. He’s 6 now and does just fine. My youngest was the opposite and was walking at 10 months. Every child is very different. I would give him some more time, but if you’re concerned, speak with his dr at his next visit.

Regardless of what people say, you are clearly worried. Because every child is different, I would take him to the doctor for a checkup. It could be nothing, but it could also be something… best of luck

I’d just let his pediatrician know your concerns. But all kids have their own pace at doing things. But my pediatrician would ask if my boys were doing certain things at certain ages. It wasnt too crazy though. At 9 months mine were crawling and attempting to pull themselves up. But my little brother never crawled before walking so it just depends on the child.

One of mine never crawled just got up and started walking at ten months

So every single child grows differently its something you can not rely on. For instance my oldest is 3yrs old. She was walking at 9.5 months old. But she doesnt talk right. She is in speech therapy/school. But so many 3 yrs old can talk fantastically and im still stuck with the baby sign language to help her. My youngest. Didnt walk till 16 months old exactly. She talks here and there. But every kid is different dont freak out

At 10 months I wouldn’t be too concerned…

Is he 15 months, or 10 months? Because there’s a big difference between the two.

My 6 month old crawls, stands up all by herself, gives 5, but doesn’t clap yet, sits up all by herself, walks around things holding on!!

The worse thing to do, from experience, is to compare your child to other people’s children. No child is the same. Your baby will get there when they get there. If you’re concerned, talk to the dr.

Don’t let your first big milestone concern go by the way side yes kids do things at their own pace but they still need to be close to on track with milestones. Bring it up to your dr they will let you know normal time frames. Remember as a parent you are your child/ babies advocate you know your child best if something feels off talk to dr(s) till you feel answers are found! Also drs don’t know everything so if you are blown off make sure to get second opinion!

Honestly your pediatrician is the best place for advice they should be giving you a printout of what milestones they expect your child to meet and then keep track of it by their next appointment. So you know your time frame and you know you have support of them watching it

My little guy was sitting unassisted at about 6-ish months, never crawled but rolled about the house. He didn’t get more than 4 teeth or walk until well after his first birthday.
I brought him to our regular doctor and she straight up told me that he’s lazy, but would schedule a consultation if I wanted.
He walked shortly after.
