Movement And Coordination In Your Child Is Speeding Rapidly

Team AckoFeb 8, 2024

At this age, walking is a major achievement in your child and he might have already started it. If not, he is going to get there pretty soon. 



    Kids who are learning to walk are called "toddlers" because that’s exactly what they do, they toddle. As your kid’s mobility improves, so does his ability to investigate where he couldn't before. Though some babies take their first steps before their first birthdays, most learn to walk well in the months after they turn one. 

    What you need to know:

    About 6 months after taking their first steps, toddlers develop a more mature gait, holding their hands at their sides and moving with their feet closer together. They also tend to move their feet in a way that looks more like walking, moving from the heel to the toe.

    During these months of practice, most toddlers make a few falls, but this is a part of learning to walk. You can't protect your champ from every fall, but you can reduce the risk of injury by keeping his exploration to areas with soft carpeted surfaces and away from sharp corners of furniture.
