OMG! I'm so nervous about my babygirl trying to walk and falling hard

My babygirl is 10 months young and has been walking around the house while I hold her hand (she completely skipped the crawling phase lol) She is able to stand in place on her own for a while and then holds my hand to start walking again. At times she tries to let go of my hand to walk on her own but I'm soooo scared to let go because she loses her balance and starts falling backwards (I catch her of course). I bought a safety helmet for her to help prevent injury but also to try to help me "let her go". I just can't do it!! Help mommas!!

them falling over now isn’t bad, it will teach them that it hurts when they’re older 💕, but for peace of mind try a walker?

I feel you, my 11 month old has been on her feet since 7 months, so I got those thick foam play mats and eventually got a playpen. Now she’s walking and knows how to fall back on her tush. She’s had a few bad falls while walking on wood floors, which made me feel horrible but the cooler you play it, the faster they get over it. Some patience, lots of love and the occasional ice pack. It’s not easy but she’ll get there.

In a room with a rug or carpet, let her walk and see how she does. Most babies when they’re learning how to walk kinda just plop down on their butts and the diaper gives them padding. If she does fall, calmly comfort her and let her try again. She’ll get the hang of it!
