Keep Encouraging Your Child To Practice His Walking Abilities

Congratulations! Your bundle of joy has started walking, an achievement which makes him more self reliant. 

In order to enhance his walking abilities, get him into activities which will strengthen his leg muscles and improve balance.

You can roll a ball towards and away from your baby.  This will motivate him to maintain his balance while moving forward and backward. You can also hold his favourite toy and ask him to come to you to get the toy.

You can invest in age appropriate push and pull toys. They will help him learn how to move and keep balance. 

Let your baby be barefoot. This will enable him to have a better grip on the surface. Walking with shoes is hard for him presently. You can also strengthen his leg muscles by getting him to bounce on your lap at times.
