  • I've never heard of this. When I saw leg kicking it was usually both legs. I'd suggest calling her doctor and asking about it, just for your peace of mind.

  • I agree with the previous poster. My daughter is a leg kicker as well but it is both legs. Can sure move or kick the other leg?

  • She seems to be fine she moves both legs and she moves all around but when she's laying down or sitting she just kicks one leg all the time she has a doc appointment on the 3rd i just didnt know if anyone else has had this happen
