A reflexive movement of the leg seen in newborn infants. This lasts until about two months of age. It can be demonstrated by holding the baby in an upright position on a flat surface He or she will lift one leg in the air, then step with the other foot and “walk”. Most, but not all babies exhibit this reflex. Your baby can not support his own weight at this stage of development and should never be expected to bear weight at this age.
