I completely recommend that you take your son to a pediatric physical therapist. When my youngest son was about your son's age, we started going and it helped immensely. Although my youngest boy only has unilateral talipes, we found that he only used the one side of his body and he was very imbalanced.

He is now 3 years old and only needs PT when he has a serious growth spurt or milestone (like walking).

Every child is different--none of my 3 kids could crawl at 7 months (and only my youngest has a clubfoot!). But if you are truly concerned, talk to your doctor and find a physical therapist!

Good luck!
