I have 21 month old twins who were born at 7 months, so 2 months premature...My son has been walking for months now but my daughter has not. She does cruise, she walks holding on to things or a hand and with her doll stroller, BUT she will NOT stand or walk on her own, if you let her hand go she falls down, the look of fear comes over her face, seems like she is just scared. But as a mom I am looking more into it, her legs looks weird to me when she walks, like the one doesn't bend or something. My husband says its just because she is scared and does not have her balance or the know how to walk correctly yet, he thinks nothing is wrong. My pediatrician said as long as she is crawling correctly and cruising she doesn't think anything is wrong with her legs either, that she will do it when ready. That part of her brain just didn't connect yet to make her walk right...anyone else ever go thru this?? Is there anything I can do to help her along?? If she is not walking by 2 then I think we may have to do PT. HELP!!
