9 months old & not standing Romin & Amelia's Mommy 2 kids; Wisconsin 220 posts

Okay so a while ago I posted a thread about my boyfriends nephew being 4 months old and not bearing any weight on his feet/legs. He is now 9 months old and still not bearing any weight. He sits up but that is it. He will not put any weight on his feet so you cant stand him up, he wont crawl, he wont jump in a jumpee. I keep telling them to get him checked out but no one will listen. Any one else have this problem with kids?

well its a good sign that he sits up, but I would still be concerned about his legs. He won't put ANY weight on them? What does the doctor say? Usually thats something they look at during the 6 month checkup. They'll stand the baby on the exam table for a second (supported of course) and make sure they can put weight on their legs.

Was he a preemie?

that's really weird..
I know Savannah would bear all her weight on her legs from the time she was a newborn. I mean, until about 5 weeks, she would do steps, but she definitely would bear her weight, and always has.
