1000 hours

It takes most babies about 1,000 hours of practice from the time they pull themselves upright to the time they can walk alone. source

When to walk

Most babies take their first steps around their first birthday, but the age range varies from 9 to 18 months. source


The American Academy of Pediatrics discourages walkers. Studies show that they can slow motor development & cause back problems source

Bare feet

Bare feet give your toddler’s feet a closer encounter with the floor, and that will help develop balance and coordination. source
