Q.

baby 7 months - still not bearing weight

Hi, my question is as follows : My son will be 7 months on 28 September and is still not bearing weight on his legs. He doesn' t either put full support on his arms. He is however doing everything else a 6 - 7 month old should be doing. I was informed that it is a muscle problem. What exercises can I give him to build up his shoulder and leg muscles?

All your baby should be doing now is sitting by himself. His next milestone is to crawl by about 10 months. You are expecting far too much of your baby. There is no need for any exercises.
