Babies of this age who are learning to walk often fall quite a lot. This does not usually happen when the baby is sitting but usually when standing.Your baby seems to be normal after the falls and when he learns to walk he should fall much less often. It does not appear necessary for him to be seen by a doctor at this stage.
