13 months old

Worried because your baby isn’t walking yet? Be careful what you wish for. Even some perfectly healthy tots don’t walk until they’re 18 months old, so try to enjoy her pre-walking days while they last. (You’ll be chasing her around before you know it.)

your toddler at 13 months
  • Toddlerhood has arrived! That means mealtime messes, new words (like “NO!”), squirmy diaper changes, and mood swings. (In case you haven’t heard, one is the new two.)
  • There are plenty of positives, too: unsolicited (wet, sloppy) kisses and rocking out to your favorite tunes (who can resist a dancing baby?).
  • About this time, rolls of pudge might start disappearing from arms and legs and weight gain will slow.
