HI Im new here ..have a question for all u moms n grandmas . i have legal custody n im raising my grandson since he was about 3 n a hlf months old . he was loosing weight spending his days in his chair n just seriously neglected before we took over :-( since we have had him hes alert chuncky happy n sooooo loved ! we now hit 9 months old n have a few concerns developmentaly . he always hated tummy time even when i did everything n anything to make it fun . he is sitting up nice but doesnt try n catch himself if he is gonna fall over ...thats a major concern NO? he doesnt get up on his own he needs to be put in the sitting position .and has NO interest in crawling whatso ever . he does run like a bandit in his walker ,speaks some words UP , DADA, NO he waves bye bye n kisses ,love that ! are these delays just part of being so neglected in the begining ? should i get him checked by PT or OT ? my hubby thinks its cause we do everything for him , we have 7 yes 7 lol children in the house over age 10 , so he always has someone to count on ...
