12 Month Old Favoring One Leg??

My 12 month old has been pulling herself up to standing on furniture (or whatever she can!) for about a month now, but she only uses her left leg to lift off on. She then will almost drag her right leg to get herself to stand. She crawls well & can stand on both legs, but really favors her left leg. Anyone else have experience with this? We are going to the pediatrician in a month, but I wanted other mom advice!

Hi! I'm wondering if you could share the resolution with your dd. My 12 month old is doing this too and am curious what you learned and if you had any advice to share. Thanks so much!

i'd have it checked for sure as you are doing.. it may just be a dominant muscle and as she learns she will realize she can use both muscles evenly. i am interested to know the outcome.. :)

No both her legs appear to be the same length. She just really prefers her left leg.

I don't know if I would wait a month. when she is asleep or lying down is one leg shorter than the other?
