LO has been cruising the furniture for about 6 weeks and yesterday suddenly started using her walker properly. She's spent most of today doing laps of the house with it looking very pleased with herself! She's 14 months so was quite late I think to get to this stage, she's tall and not light so may be that's something to do with it. Anyway, what I was wondering was how long it took everyone's LO to go from walking with a walker and cruising to 'the real thing!' ? I know it's an individual thing but I'm trying to work out whether I should buy proper shoes now, whether to 'save' certain clothes for when she's walking etc. She's very anti holding onto our hands and walking, and sits down as soon as their offered so maybe she's not ready.
