DS won't "stand"!!
 
I don't know if this is weird or not, but I notice it when I see other babies Rylan's age. I notice that alot of babies when you stand them up on their feet they stand up. They sort of lock their knees and are standing (of course being held). Rylan is almost 8 mos and has never done this. He goes into a jolly jumper sometimes but when you try and stand him he is sort of like a wet noodle and just doesn't do it. He is achieving all other developmental milestones and I think he will likely crawl soon. He has tried pulling himself up under the coffee table while laying down to more of a sitting position but not pulling from sitting to stand. I am not sure if he should be pulling from sitting to standing. Anyone know or have any input?

Hmm... I would have it checked out just to be on the safe side. My DS has a joint malformation so he has very low muscle tone and he used to do the exact same thing (the noodle effect you're talking about). Our neuro. was going to do an MRI of his spine but we found out it was more of an orthopaedic thing rather than neurologic. But from my understanding, they should be pushing from the ground from a pretty young age - my friend has a baby four months younger than DS and I know she's been "standing" since at least 2 months old so I have been around what's "normal" and what's not.

So I would get it checked out with your pedi. S/he might give you a referral to see a neurologist just to check it out. :hugs:

:yeahthat: I believe it's a reflex that babies should have...when you put their feet against something, they should lock their knees and try to stand. DS has been doing it probably since he was 2 months old. He's 9 months today and has been pulling up to standing for about a month now.

My ds wouldn't do it till waaaay past 8 months. He could do it, but he rarely did. He was on the later (but normal) side for milestones...sat at 9 months, crawled at 14 months and walked at 18 months. He was and still is a 'sitter' who would rather sit in the sandbox than run maniacally like most other boys. He is a thinker not a mover. He is (and was) completely normal in every respect just took him longer to really get mastery over gross motor.

Just don't let stories of 10 month old walkers make you forget that everything has a range, and walking for one has an AVERAGE age of 15 months...which means it falls on both sides.

I guess what you want to do is distinguish between not being able to do it and just not wanting to. My ds just didn't WANT to.

It is a reflex.. that they actually check for at birth... the stepping kinda thing babies will do once pressure is put on their foot .. like standing..

MY nephew was like this and he is a perfectly healthy 11 year old. but I would say it is definately worth mentioning to your ped, just to be safe

Stepping is a newborn reflex, but he would have been tested for that and if he hadn't passed you know it.

Standing with kness locked is not the same thing.
