Anyone else have a low tone child who cannot keep him self upright for long periods of time? My biggest concern is with his car seat in the car. He is a very tall boy, he is 4 but the size of a 6 year old at 47" tall. He also weighs 52lbs. The problem is rather than laying on the door (which i still don't like because what will happen in a side impact car crash) but is better than his laying flat with only his mid section under the belt like he is ready to ooze off the seat at any minute.
on a side note any ideas for getting him or objects to help him sit on his own without laying on near by people would be immensely helpful in like the church setting with pews, or even at assembly's at school etc.
Really bad when he oozes his head on to a strange gentlemans lap just because he was the nearest person..... they don't tend to understand much, but whats worse is the feelings it gives my son when he doesn't understand why the guy is upset.....
any help or ideas would be wonderfully appreciated! Thanks!
