Hi,
The verb “stagger” means to move or stand unsteadily. A drunk person usually staggers, he can’t walk straight.
The verb “totter” means to sway as if about to fall; to move back and forth or from side to side, as if about to fall; to appear about to collapse. A toddler usually walks that way.

Hope this helps!
Daniela
