It kind of worries me cuz he has been doin this since he was like a month old. If u hold him up he like stands...idk how else to explain it. When I try to sit him down he locks his legs so i cant. He seems to enjoy it but im afraid that it will make him bow legged or affect his spine or something.

my daughter didn't want to move and she is nearly 12. my five month old doesn't want to move either he is a chill, just is happy being. my 3.5yo however was standing up and walking by 5 months around the furniture and walking properly at 9 months. So they are certainly individual if you have any problems speak to maternal nurse.

My little guy is 19 wks and he loves to stand. I started him in his jumper at 3months. He also likes to sit and can almost sit without help, he uses his hands to balance.

My bub loves standing too, he's been able to stand since he was a month old or so. If you try to sit him down sometimes he will continue to stand. He also tries to sit up by himself but cant yet, it looks funny when he tries lol.

Thanks for all the advice! Nicole...how does ur daughter like the jumperoo and what exactly is it?

[deleted account]

My daughter has been trying to stand up since around 2-21/2 months. I got her a jumperoo at 3 months becus of it. I dont worry to much becus my oldest daughter did the same thing and isnt bow legged or anything. My daughter will be 5 months in a wk and loves to stand and jump.

My four month old loves sitting and standing. He's always trying to sit forward in his car seat and pram now and loves grabbing my fingers to help himself sit up or stiffens his legs if he wants to stand.

Every baby develops at their own pace. My daughter was trying to stand at 3 months and was sitting up at 3 months. So, no it's not strange :)
