i had my son at 31 weeks, he is now 10 months and 3weeks. He is still under weight, can't sit up on his own and he doesn't crawl. Not sure what to fix first, they say he can't sit up because he's still in the 'bobble head stage' (his head is still too big for his body) which of course makes it impossible for him to start crawling. We saw a nutritionists who said im doing the right things for weight gain he just has a very high metabolism. It kills me for him to be behind his peers at even his corrected age. I need all the suggestions I can get on how to jump start the growth so we can get to where we need to be. It's hard to try to work with him because i am a single mom who is active duty army and trying to go to school. By the time i pick him up from daycare he's out for the night so i only really get weekends with him. Any and all advice will be appreciated.
