thanks for tagging me Roopashree....Shruti Giri massage is very effective do it twice or thrice on his legs keep his legs straight. Please do not make him stand for long or forcefully let it be on his own. Actually it happens when we start making kids stand at early stage bones takes time to bear the weight so we should avoid standing the baby at least till 9 or 10 months. anyways shruti don't worry it will b alright just keep massaging him properly but with soft hands.
