My nephew is 4 1/2 months old and has no muscle strength in his legs. He can move them OK but he can not put weight on them. Example: I laid him in the floor and was pressing slightly on the bottom of his feet and they would just collapse. Instead of him pressing back like most babies do. ( I am a mother of three and have also worked in daycare's all my life so I have been around a lot of babies and none act like this) Also his arm are much the same way. I have to pick him up like a new born baby b/c if I don't he body just falls backward. I am very worried, can anyone help? My sister doesn't think that anything is wrong so she wont say anything to the Dr. but maybe if I can give her some good information she will believe me... By the way idk if this is relevent but she is a type 1 diabetic who did not take good care of herself during pregnancy.
