I've heard its when they start walking, DS can walk and he does a good job at it. But he still primarily crawls (I think its because he can get around faster crawling). He's almost 11 months.

Would he be considered a toddler? He can walk all around. From room to room he just chooses not to.

After 1 year of age, technically. My 13 month old can't walk yet but I think of him more of a toddler than an infant.

My oldest didn't walk or have any teeth until 15 months old, and he was small. It took me awhile to stop thinking of him as "a baby" lol.

I used to think about 2 just because of the development. Then someone told me bits when they start walking so idk anymore.

I say at 12 months or when they start walking. Which ever comes first.

When they start toddling around. 12 months makes sense.

Its when they turn 1. If it went by walking then DS would have been a toddler at 9.5 months.

Technically when they toddle, but I just dont feel right calling some 8 month olds a toddler. So I go from a year old
