I've come up with a way that I hope will encourage my 14 month-old to walk. It's not that I'm panicky about her development. It's just that she's a big, big baby and my arms are tired from carrying her. So I'm trying something. I pushed together the couches in our living room so that there's a one-foot gap between them, making a nice aisle for her to walk up and down (with help from the couch seats).

I'd love to hear other Parenthackers' suggestions for helping their kids learn to walk. I'll brace myself for those who may criticize me for trying to push my child beyond her normal pace of development. They have no idea how heavy she is.
Anyone have a tip?
