My 14mo has been taking between 1-4 steps at a time for about 2 months now but just can’t seem to take the plunge and do any more than that! How can I build his confidence and encourage him please? He won’t do it unless there’s someone to catch him and when he’s nearly there he just dives into your arms instead of walking thanks!
Hi. Thanks for reaching out. This is very common. First I would look at his shoes. Give him a stable base to build on for his confidence. Once he’s walking if his alignment is fine you don’t need to wear them all the time but a solid foundation really helps. I am also going to tag you in a post I just wrote that for a mom with a similar question. In addition I would work on ‘tricking’ him into walking. Here is a video playlist I did with ideas. https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL_LHP8Z5Gpd8O2hSH6Ceq1yvud41xtEzv Let me know if you have more questions and keep us posted!
