    Default Appointment today

    It was meant to be his 9 month appointment but when I phoned up they said they are super busy when they are dealing with Sept/Oct babies as it's always the busiest baby time so it's a nearly 11 month appointment

    Anyway...

    He's exactly 21lbs, 30" tall 18" head. Weigh and head are in the 50th% and his height is the 75th%

    The doc was very impressed with his playing skills but he's got to go back in 6-8 weeks as he's not mobile or pulling up. She told me he wouldn't get referred to a ped until was 13 months because he might just be a slow learner but by then he "should" be doing it. The main concern is that he might have an issue/disorder with his thigh muscles which only boys get (she didn't tell me what it is or what help he would get as she didn't think he's got it, she just thinks he's being a lazy boy but they have to do it in case, she did say it was a pretty serious disorder though..)

    I'll obviously keep you all posted on the second he moves

    ETA: I've been given the go ahead to start him on cows milk as a drink. I've been trying to get him to have formula in the afternoon as he's way too busy to BF but still wants milk...however the formula tastes like poo to him so the doc said "well he's nearly 1"

    Sounds like it was an overall good appointment. I hope he's just lazy Never thought I'd say that about someone's kid, but it seems to fit here.

    I hope he likes the cows milk better than the formula!

    So does he roll over yet? Sit up? I say you should call a physical therapist and ask them if its in range of his age?

    Im glad he is a growin boy!

    I'm sure he'll move soon enough and then you won't be able to stop him! I'm waiting for the day when you post that out of nowhere he stood up and started running. lol
    Sounds like he's doing great though! Let us know how the cows milk goes.

    Yeah, I'm kind of thinking the same thing Sarah's going to be on here one day screaming about how he won't stop!

    He does both these which is why she wasn't that worried about him, he started rolling around 3 months and sitting about at 7 months which are both normal. He gets around by laying on his back and slowly scooting himself around. As soon as he gets on his belly he cries and rolls over. She did say that babies who don't crawl or army craw usually take longer to pull up which is why they don't worry yet

    That makes sense as DS army crawled (never did crawl right) and didn't walk til 15 months.

    I like the line of the conversation here! DS still only army crawls. I'm 99% sure that he won't be walking by his 1st birthday. It's harder for kids to even think to pull up if they spend their days observing their world from their backs. For the longest time DS preferred to play with toys while on his back. He still does it half the time. I think it's been hard for DS to figure out pulling up on certain things b/c of how he army crawls and rolls around. Good reminder that as long as they get there in the end, it doesn't matter the path they take.

    my ped said the same when Lucas wasn't sitting or doing stuff. Within a month he was doing it and he still doesn't crawl either. From what you have told us about Toby I think he is an observer and will do it soon
