Just curious to hear your experiences: our little girl is almost 8 months old. tricky start with surgery then recovery and being below .4th centile for first few weeks so very underweight. Now happily on 50th centile, sitting, curious,grabbing and reaching for toys and is a really smily, cheerful child. Just one thing troubling me -she doesn't bear any weight on her legs. She loves kicking on her changing mat and really thumps her feet hard and kicks like mad in a deep bath or pool but if i hold her upright her legs just bend under her! Don't get me wrong i am not desperate for her to walk (I didn't till 18 months apparently and seem to be physically fine) but wonder if any of you have experienced this with your children. other babies her age all seem to be making their little legs rigid to stand. She doesn't roll much either. Went to gp today who wants to do a 'check' on thurs (originally asked me to come back at 6pm today which I said wasn't convenient as it's her bedtime) and was made to feel that she was concerned so now i feel a bit anxious (default setting these days). Any comments?
