Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically every child has their own speed of development. There are children whose motor development is faster and has been able to stand and walk at the age of 10 months, there is also a child who has not been able to walk for more than 1 year. However, if your child is 18 months old and has not been able to walk or even cannot stand upright, then your child can be said to experience a delay in walking. In this case, you should immediately check with a pediatrician.
The pediatrician will further examine the health condition of your child to find out whether there are certain physical problems that cause difficulty walking, whether there are problems with nutrition and growth of the child, or the presence or absence of other developmental disorders. You should not delay this examination because allowing a developmental delay can cause other developmental delays / disturbances as well.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
