Baby P died after suffering from months of abuse
The sentencing of three people over the death of Baby P has been postponed for at least three months.
Earlier this month the boy's mother, her boyfriend and their lodger, Jason Owen, were convicted of causing the death of the 17-month-old boy.
They were due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 15 December but it has been delayed "for legal reasons".
The toddler died in Haringey, north London, after suffering months of abuse and despite visits by the authorities.
Trial Judge Stephen Kramer said the sentencing had been put off for at least three months.
He said: "For legal reasons, the sentencing of the three defendants is postponed until March or April 2009."
Baby P suffered more than 50 injuries over eight months, despite being on the Haringey Child Protection Register and being visited 60 times by social workers, police and medical professionals.
His mother, 27, pleaded guilty to causing or allowing the toddler's death.
Her boyfriend, 32, and Owen, 36, were found guilty following a trial last month. They were all cleared of murder.
MPs have called for a review into Baby P's death, which pointed to failings in Haringey council's child protection services, to be made public.
Earlier this week, council leader George Meehan and colleague Liz Santry survived calls for them to be sacked over the case.
