How much tummy time do you give her. That helps to strengthen her limbs. You can also massage behind her knees once or twice a day that also helps to loosen up the muscle behind her knees. Just some tips. Hope they help!!!!!

I am a pediatric physcial therapist. If your gut says you think something is wrong, go to your pediatrician and tel her/him you want an eval for PT. It can't hurt, it will only help, and you will get ideas of what to do with her at home to stimulate her. It is better to get early intervention then wait too long. It won't hurt to get some answers.

I would say things are fine, wait it out, but I have to say go to a specialist or consult your pediatrition if you havnt already.

You should definitely talk to a doctor. I think that the "oh she's fine" attitude is very wrong, because unless she's been examined by a physician you don't know that she's fine. She may have a problem that can be corrected if you catch it early enough.

be patient, my best friend's daughter didnt crawl, or any of that and now she is one years old but now she is trying to walk. maybe she is skipping all the other stuff.But if she is 16 months and still not walking you need to talk to the doctor

Is she trying to walk or showing interest in jumping when you hold her hands? My son only crawled once (at 7 mo) and only wanted to jump and walk ever since. He just skipped crawling altogether! If she's active in other ways I wouldn't sweat it. If she's very inactive all around give your doctor a call and make an appointment. Have they showed any concern at her wellness visits?

I am sure she is ok! I have 4 kids and my older ones did everything early and my last one which is 10 months is very slow! He does things on his own and will do it when he is ready! I have took him to doctors and they said he is fine they have ran test and said he is just lazy lol. I am sure she is ok!

She is fine. None of my kids started crawling until at least 11 months. When she's ready, she will do it. Just be sure to give her lots of unrestricted floor time.

Is she sitting up? Does she scoot around?

Have you talked with her doctor?



I'm not sure if it something to be concerned about. My babies did everything way before they were suppose to. But I would think she would atleast be scooting around beginning to crawl by 10 mos. I would talk with her doctor.
