do you mean standing on his own? or with you holding him? he is still very young and some babies just dont like being on their feet. i think most babies stand with their bums out

i wouldnt worry yet hun, my 3rd (i was same as u worried and took him to hvs and gps etc) was still not bearing any weight on his legs at 11 months old! he couldnt even sit up til 9 months!
but he is fine Smile just before his 1st birthday he started bearing weight and started pulloing himself up shortly after that then at 15m started walking! they do it all in their own time!
the whole sticking his bum out is probably just him trying to balance himself? but if u are worried then just mention to ur HV Smile xXx

My baby has just turned one and she hates standing. She has pulled herself up against the sofa twice and that is it. She has only just started crawling too. I'm not worried, she will get there in her own time! X

my daughter didnt crawl until she was nearly 10 months so i think him not being able to stand is fine. does he bear weight on his legs when you hold him?

My friends girl is 15 months and she is only just standing. she spoke to doctor and they said they don't look into it until 18 months. As long as he is happy and healthy he will stand and walk in time x
