6 Months Baby’s Legs Are Not Strong And Straight?
I am Rina .. My ank is 6 months old but her legs are not fast yet .. And her legs are also not straight, but when I was a baby, it affected the shape of the river.
Hello Mrs. Rina.
Thank you for the question.
Child development is the concern of every parent. Optimal child development will produce children who have good cognitive function. Growth or growth is something that can be measured such as head circumference, height or body length, and body weight. Development is something that can be monitored using a child's development curve according to their age. Growth and development of children varies according to age and sex. The growth and development of children should be recorded in their KIA book.
Child development is divided into gross movements, subtle movements, communication, and social and independence. Child development includes:
1 month: hands and feet are actively moving, head turning left and right, reacting to the sound of a bell, staring at the carrying face
3 months: head straight, can hold a toy, laugh / scream, look at his hands
6 months: sitting without holding hands, putting objects in the mouth
9 months: standing holding on
12 months: standing without holding on
15 months: running
Child development has nothing to do with previous parental development. The development of the child will be delayed in several conditions such as:
babies have congenital defects or abnormalities
have an infection during pregnancy
nutrients that are lacking during their lifetime. Infants aged 0-6 months are encouraged to be exclusively breastfed, which means that babies only get breast milk without food, other drinks, and even vitamins. Then breastfeeding is continued until the baby is 2 years old. During the breastfeeding period, mothers should consume foods rich in nutrients and vitamins, so that the milk they produce is good for the baby. There is no better food than breast milk.
The dangers of carrying a baby include:
Hip dysplasia, where the hip joint is no longer in its bowl which can cause differences in the length of the child's leg and a change in shape which can then make it difficult for the child to walk
Sudden death syndrome in infants
The position of the child's feet is actually slightly bent at the knees, so that if you stretch the child you should loosen it in the leg, so that the child can move his leg freely.
Your child's feet are not tight, maybe what is meant is if the child is still weak and not strong? Or do you feel the kick is not strong enough? A 6 month old child whose legs are still unable to stand properly.
If the baby feels that his legs are very weak and cannot move as normal as the baby usually does, it is better for the mother to have her child checked by a Pediatrician. The doctor will conduct a medical interview, physical exam, and additional examinations if needed.
Hopefully my explanation can answer the question.
