3 year old, frequently experiences weakness in one leg causing difficulty in walking. What could be the cause?

Our child is turning three this week. He has had several episodes where one leg has become weak enough that he cant walk. One time it occurred after sitting for a while, another time when he had just woken up. This had never happened before. In both cases, he was better within a few minutes. Do you know what this could be?

Hi.. The child must be clinically examined to assess the condition... Normally the baby will walk by 1 year and run by 11/2 years..., since in this case the growth of child is slow , the child is need to be investigated for it.... not to neglect the condition.. consult a pediatrician.

Take care..
