I'm just lurking really but I wanted to introduce myself and have a question
I took DS2 to his 10 month development review last week and I was told things were quite normal with his gross motor development. He's 11 months this week and he cannot roll all the way over from back to front, can't get from laying to sitting, doesn't crawl, doesn't pull up, only just started putting weight on his legs so also no cruising. He can sit up and has been doing that since 7 months and rolling front to back since 3 months
Right now they aren't sure if he's just a bit slow on learning this or if there is something wrong. He's got a follow up review in 2 months and if he's not doing any of the above still he's going to be referred to a ped for an evaluation.
It's obvious there is nothing mentally wrong with him as he happily sits and figures out things like stacking blocks and doing peg jigsaws but he just won't/can't get mobile.
I have been told in the worst case scenario he could have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy but best he's just lazy (which I'm not sure about because I can see he desperately wants to play with DS1 but can't) and of course everything in between.
So anyone else got any children who have been late with gross motor development?
Like I said, I don't know if I really belong on this board but I also feel I can't talk to anyone on his BB about it (I love the ladies but it's difficult when your child is "different" for other people to understand)
