When can babies start putting weight on their legs?


I'm really confused about all of this... I've heard that if babies put weight on their legs too early they can end up with buckled legs.

Chaise is 23 weeks and if you sit him over your knee he tries to stand. Sometimes I stand him up and hold his hands and it is him supporting his weight! It really seems like he wants to stand and he has the biggest grin on his face when I do it but I'm worried about if its safe or not.

Thanks

I dunno but Emma has been a stander upper since about 4 weeks! Her legs have actually straightened out - she was well bandy legged before.

Willow has been standing with help obviously since she was about a month old . She loves it . The doctor says it's fine and infact her legs are actually straighter now .

Brianna's done it since about a month old. She just LOVES to stand. Never had a problem with her legs they look normal and no Dr. has ever said otherwise!

Freya has always loved to stand. I asked the HV about it once and she said the buckled legs thing is an old wives tale.
