If Your Baby Isn't Walking by This Age, You Should Talk to Your Doctor

The first milestones your kids experience are too cute for words, aren't they? The first time your baby coos, rolls over, or sits up makes your proud-parent neurons start firing. But the biggest one of them all? Walking! When you look forward to your little one's first steps, it's normal to wonder when they should do it, what's normal, and at what age you should consider intervention of any sort.

The hospital has a media contact that is there that night and helps take care of everything. [The birth announcement] goes o
