  • If the doctor is not worried about it, and she is not worried about it, I don't see any need to worry about it. Every baby develops a little bit different than another.

  • There's a jumperoo from Fisher Price that helped my daughter's leg muscles a LOT.

  • I honestly think it's a little behind but I could be thinking that because my almost 3 month old LOVES to push off and be held as if she's standing. However, all babies are different and he maybe advanced in other areas. I agree with the jumperoo! My oldest loved his and it helped a lot with his leg muscles. :)

  • My son didn't start pushing up into his knees until he was 7 months...No worries, every baby develops differently :0)

  • There's nothing to BE worried about. There are Milestones babies SHOULD hit at a certain age. This isn't one of them. The doc is right.
