Hi there! I have a daughter with a small circumference (8P) and she is slightly delayed in fine and gross motor skills. She has not rolled over yet and does not reach for any objects! (at 8 month) She is very content with lying on her back, sucking her thumb. But she loves kicking the piano board and her crib. And some good signs are she can sit alone without support and started to prop herself up with pushing her hands on the floor. She makes good eye contacts and smiles a lot.
At her 6 month check up, the doc said I really did not need to worry about her small head because it was growing at appropriate rate. (1 cm every month) But when the doc found out my daughter is slightly delayed this check up, she suddenly showed big concern :(
I'm going to see a pediatric neurologist in three weeks but I just can't stop worrying to death.I'm so worried if it is all related to her small head circumference or she is just a late bloomer.
