In brief: Weak leg muscles 1yo

May be developmentally normal as most babies don't walk until age one - but should have a pediatric or orthopaedic evaluation because certain serious conditions such as muscular dystrophy or other neuromuscular disorders can present as leg weakness.

In brief: Many diseases

There are many diseases that can produce weak legs in one year old.
I suggest to see a pediatric neurologist soon.
