Patient : My friend's 3 yo son has been sick for the last couple weeks. He wants to be held all the time and even though he is getting better, he refuses to walk. Everyone in the family holds him constantly. When he is not being held, he is sleeping. Are there any medical complications that can arise from holding a child too much?
