My son is almost 13 months. Recently had him evaluated bc of delayed Gross motor development. Right now, they think he just has mild hypotonia and will eventually catch up with physical therapy a couple of times per month.
Lately, I have been reading a lot about Muscular dystrophy and I am wondering if my son might have that.
-He only army crawls.
-He can't get up when he is on his back.
-Pulling up is extremely difficult and can only be done on low surfaces to his knees.
-He seems to tire easily and sleeps a lot and often (12/13 hours at night, 1-2 hour naps up 2-3 times per day)
If anyone has a child with similar development or even children who were diagnosed with MD, could you please let me know if your children were like this at his age? Am I worrying too much too soon?
Thanks so much
