Right from the birth of a child, parents start waiting for the time their baby will start walking. You have to wait at least 9-12 months to expect your baby to be ready to start walking. Here are a few tips that will help you encourage your baby to learn walking:

Start early:

Most babies start trying to stand when held upright at the tender age of 5 months only. They will try to support themselves and bounce a bit. This early age activity will motivate your child to start standing on their feet early.

Encourage crawling:

Encouraging crawling by putting toys away or calling you baby from a distance will improve stamina of your baby and will make him enthusiast about independent movements.

Keep them barefoot:

Feeling the ground will help your baby learn to balance. Shoes hinder this process of learning.

Offer the right support:

You must know when to hold his hand and when to leave the baby free for a while. Being always around is crucial to keep the baby safe. But letting the baby move independently sometimes will encourage him/her to learn walking.
