My son was born on Oct. 4th and he doesn't have any teeth, he's not crawling, pulling up, or cruising along furniture. He refuses to lay on his stomach to even practice crawling. I figure maybe he'll skip crawling all together, so I've been working on his standing skills... which he's pretty good at, assisted. He sits up great and is very verbal. He loves to entertain the other babies in his room in daycare by "crowing" to them and babbling. But his lack of interest in moving worries me. All the other babies he started with in daycare have already moved up months ago. New babies are already moving faster than I can blink, and my son is content to sit on the floor and watch the world go by. :(
His doctor was a little concerned as well so she set us up with a program called "Babies Can't Wait", which in our state is a program that might possibly set us up with some kind of therapy. One of the state workers is going to come evaluate my son this week to see what his issues are and whether he qualifies/has a need for the services. Deep down I'm hoping they'll say "Lady, you're paranoid. Your son is stubborn and will move when he feels like it." I worry that I might not be doing something right... am I responsible for his delay? Ugh. I just want my baby to be ok!
Thanks for letting me vent.
