Hi Ashwini, dont worry some kids directly starts standing instead of crawling. Let him sit with support of pillow or your hand, help him to stand . But dont force for anything as his bones are very delicate. Let him do whatever he wants you just give support. Try to move his left leg also.

Dear i would suggest you to discuss with a good doctor in advance. Yes there are kids who pick up slow but why would you want to take risk. Feed him good , Keep on messaging him with good oil and try to make him physically active. But besides this you should keep discussing his growth and keep an eye on his proper development in the guidance of a good doctor.

there is nothing much to think about a preterm labour in ur case. Bcz 20 days is nothing to think about. giving birth after 36th week is gud. coming to ur kid it's nrml for some babies to postpone a milestone . n some babies skip crawling stage too. don't worry about that and help ur baby learning new things.
