Hi, I babysit for an adorable little boy who is 15 months old. He was 8 months before he ever sat alone and now at 15
months he can't stand or walk. He does crawl but has a "different" way he goes about it.Sits on his butt and scoots around on the floor. Whenever I try to get him to just stand his legs shake. Also his legs have little muscle tone and he has speech delay.Weighs only 23 lbs. hard for him to gain weight.
He has great parents. They take very good care of him. A pt sees him once a week but Ive seen no improvement. I've tried talking to his mom in a round about way but I think all of her faith is in the pt. I love this little boy. I;ve been caring for him since he was 10 wks old and if there is something more going on with these delays I know early intervention will give him the best chance of overcoming it. What can I do?
