Q.

not walking

Afternoon. Just wanted to know - baby is 15months old and still not walking. She takes about four steps at a time when you stretch out to her. She is 'afraid'. She crawls and moves along objects, climbs up onto, and down from the furniture. Her first steps were the begining of this month. I was sure she would start walking by the end of the month.

She only took two steps then, now progressed to four. Is there any means of getting her confidence up. She has a push 'trolley' toy to help her walk - she has no hassels with that, but once you take it away, she's petrified.

Any advice???
