Q.

11 month old

My little boy will be a year on 23rd. He is still not walking - does not talk, besides baba and dada. He will say the odd other word on an occassion. He crawls, he stands up and holds onto things, will walk around the coffee table holding on or along the couch holding on. Is there anything i need to worry about?

There is no need for any concern. Most children only start walking at about 13 months and your baby is already pulling himself up and holding onto things. He should start walking quite soon. His speech is also normal for his age.
