Thank you for the question on HealthReplies.com,
Need to be explored further about the condition of walking disorders experienced. Is the walking disturbance seen as limping, one of the legs appear smaller than the other side, the swelling disturbance in the ankle area that causes swelling, feet and soles of the foot that are bent inwards, or other walking disorders.
Also, know if you mean that your child has been given a polio vaccine or has polio. If given the polio vaccine it is in accordance with the recommendations of the Indonesian Pediatrician Association regarding immunization. If you have never been given a polio vaccine and contracted polio then it is a complication or part of polio.
Polio is a disease that is caused by a virus that is generally located in the digestive tract and the throat of a human. The best method for avoiding this disease is to prevent using the polio vaccine. The polio virus can also attack the nervous system in the human body and cause paralysis (paralysis type polio).
Also note that in the development of the baby there are some important times when the baby can start sitting, standing with help, or walking, including:
Infants have begun to sit alone without assistance at the age of 4-7 months.
Babies begin to crawl at the age of 7 months.
Around the age of 8-9 months, the baby will grow stronger. At this stage, he can lift himself with the help of furniture or people around him.
At the age of 9-12 months, babies begin to walk on their own without assistance.
At the age of 2 months, babies can not learn to sit alone, while at the age of 6 months a new baby can begin to sit alone by propping up on his mat. So it is indeed not detected interference in walking. If you are worried about a child's condition that is not as usual, you can consult a pediatrician regarding further examination and management.
It is recommended not to give medication consumption to children without doctor's instructions, ensure that your child's nutritional needs are sufficient with an exclusive breastfeeding regimen until the age of 6 months of the baby, make observations on the child's growth and development.
Hopefully this information can help you,
