My daughter is 6 months old (she was born 11-25-09) and i think she may be behind developmentally. She cant sit up, crawl, hold her bottle, and rarely grasps toys. She also refuses baby food and baby cereal. She is 13 lbs right now, im not sure how much she is supposed to wiegh.



She can rock back in forth on her hands and knees which might indicate she'll crawl soon



Please let me know what u think, her dr is really over booked, she cant get in for her 6 month exam until July

She eats so much. She wont eat baby food, so she takes formula 8oz every 2 hrs. She usually sleeps thru the night without eating though

I wouldn't worry about those milestones because every baby is different. I have a friend whose daughter didn't start doing those things until she was almost a year old. As long as she's eating her formula that is all that matters. Although I would be a little concerned about the weight issue. How much formula is she eating?? Because right now I go through almost nine to ten cans of formula a month.. I guess if all else failed you could take her to the E.R if you had to get her seen

I'm sure your baby girl is fine though=o)

I am looking into it. My kids are on medicaid so i he has to refer us to someone else.. Yeah i thought she was small, when she was 4 months old i was talking to a friend who had a 2 month old and our babies had only a 8 oz differance in their wieght. She wieghed 11 lbs

I wouldn't worry about the food, sitting up, or crawling yet. Especially since she rocks on her hands and knees. And some babies just aren't ready for food until later. But she sounds very small. My own daughter was 12 lbs at 4 months which was roughly the 5th percentile. I'm not a medical professional, though. Could you possibly get her in at another dr? You shouldn't have to wait until July if you have concerns.
