My son is walking worried something might be wrong

I know this is probably too early to be worrying about his walking since he just turned 1 lask week but i am concernd and would like some peoples opinions. He is just starting to take steps but i have noticed that when he does he ALWAYS steps with his left foot first and then kind pulls the right leg which then makes him walk side ways....its kinda hard to explain but i hope you can get a picture. He is only taking steps if i stand him up and get him balanced. He is super good at balancing!!! Sometimes when hes about to fall he actually catches himself. Im just worried about him pulling along his right leg and walking sideways. Like he can walk a straight line but his body is turned sideways. Any help would be greatful thanks! He does go in next friday for his 1 year check up

  • Talk to your ped. Could be something to be worried about, or it could be nothing.

  • That's good that he's got the doctor's appointment. Definitely bring it up. Some children just develop odd ways to walk because they're being creative and there isn't an issue, but you'll want to get it checked in case there's a problem. Good luck!
