Dragging Leg

My 12 month old dragged her leg when learning to crawl then abruptly stopped. When she was 10-11ish months she dragged her leg behind her when using a push cart. She abruptly stopped this week. She is learning to walk but right now can only scoot along furniture or use the push cart. Should I be worried about the leg dragging?

When you say abruptly stopped do you mean she started to use it the same as the other leg? If so, this can be typical when they are first learning a new skill. They are figuring out how to make their body work and navigate coordinated movement. We often say that in the first month to two after a little one starts walking you may see some asymmetries but they should resolve. Hope this helps!

Yes she started using it like the other one.

Thanks for the response. I’ll keep watching but not stress too much.


Great and don’t hesitate to reach back out!
