    Default 5 month old legs always crossed

    Hey there, my 5 and a half month old son nearly always has his feet crossed and when he is on his tummy he tries to hunch his legs up to push off the ground but he crossed his legs and so he doesn't go anywhere I continually uncross them but he keeps doing this. Does anyone else have this problem and tips to stop him from doing this he also does it when he stands he crosses his feet!

    Thank you

    My 5mo crossed his feet all the time too. DD used to do it at that age. I don't think it's anything to worry about but you could mention it to the child health nurse or your GP at the next check up if you're concerned. I'm assuming he's had routine checks previously that haven't suggested any problems with his hips?

    Okay that's good to hear! Yeah when he has his check ups they say everything is fine, it's just he can't push his legs up underneath him cause he crossed them!
