What are developmental milestones for babies learning to walk?

ANSWER

By 6 to 10 months: Most babies will pull themselves up to stand.

Between 7 and 13 months: Most babies will be happily cruising around the furniture.

Babies will be able to walk a little with support from a parent (but don't force early walking).
