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!!

My little one is 8 months and walking 😳(trying to keep up with her older brother) I had the same worry with my son. Kid is a hurricane, and always was falling or knocking his head etc. I actually asked my peds how hard is to hard. He told me that as long as they aren’t inconsolable after a few minutes, blood pass out or anything like that they are good. They are a lot more durable than you think. If she’s attempting to walk on her own let her. Its a critical part of their development. And once she figures it out she’ll be a runner and she’ll get many bumps and bruises along the way. Just give her some kisses and stand her back up. ( side note every time one of my kids take a spill we cheer to distract from shock of falling) my daughter falls in her bit and starts clapping now 😂😂

Might be a good idea too to have her fitted for some good, sturdy walking shoes 😁
