Fiona the hippo was born 6 weeks early at the Cincinnati Zoo last months and has been doing water therapy to strengthen her muscles, watch as she takes her first steps.

How old was your child when they walked?

  • My first was 11 1/2 months. Second bub walked at 10 months, skipped crawling completely


  • Very sweet, thank you for sharing.


  • She seems to be enjoying all of the attention. So cute. My youngest son walked when he was 10 months old before he crawled.


  • Mwah, too cute ! Water is so great to strenghten our muscles, also for our little ones.
    My eldest daughter was 13 months when she walked, my son 17 months, my 2nd daughter 10 months and my youngest (has Down Syndrome) was 2,5 years.


  • Just so cute – love the water therapy idea.


  • OMG so cute. I’m in love now.


  • Awwww too cute!!


  • How adorable is this? My son was walking around about the 12 month mark. Funny, but nearly 15 years on, I can’t recall the exact date. I imagine it’s written down somewhere.


  • Aww sooo cute, love the use of the pool noodles. Way to go Fiona keep up the great work.


  • I love the water therapy idea. Maybe it could be trialed for toddlers who lack muscle strength. Ours varied from 13 to 15 months before they were walking without hanging onto anything.


  • A beautiful video of this hippo to start my day. :)

    • Oh….and my children starting walking before the age of 1. :)


  • Mwah, so cute !
    My eldest daughter was 13 months, my son 17 months, my daughter 10 months and my youngest daughter (she has Down syndrome) was 2 year and 5 months when first walking.


  • One of my children was walking at the age of ten months and the other 1 day before he turned 1 and that hippo was so cute.


  • Love seeing baby animals,so cute!
