If it were you would you worry?

OK. So I posted the other day about Tobey's lack of mobility and no interest in standing. Well yesterday he decided he would give the standing thing a try. Only on someone's lap when they are holding him though. The only thing is he crys like he doesn't like doing it the whole time :confused: I'm not sure if it hurts or if he just doesn't want to do it. It's not a real pain cry (like the holding breath kind of cry when he bumps himself/gets something dropped on him :rolleyes: etc) but just a moaning sort of cry. Defiantly not happy

If this were my first baby then I would just think "yeah, he's lazy" but DS1 was already trying to walk by now and second babies are meant to be faster at these things :confused:

I'm going to take him to get weighed next week so I will ask about it then but if it were you and he was your baby would you think something was wrong?

maybe, but i am paranoid and a worry wart! since you are going to take him in next week it wouldn't hurt to ask. I am sure it's fine he is just taking his time:bigarmhug:

I think I'd be concerned if he wasn't doing it and also was upset when trying. Not over the top concerned yet but still enough to mention it to the doctor and ask their opinion and get some advice. I'm with you too in thinking that he'd totally want to be keeping up with DS1 and all the fun.

If he were just not being mobile, I wouldn't worry that much. But if he's acting like it causes physical pain then I would be concerned. Since he's going in any way, I'd definitely mention it.

Agree

?, is he crawling/schooting everywhere yet? rolling? or just not standing?

Definitely mention it so they can keep an eye on it. I would think that it's too early to freak out about his mobility. Hopefully he'll take off in the next three months. Smile

I'd mention it since you're going in anyway but I wouldn't worry yet. A few months ago we went to a playground that had those rubberized mats under the equipment. I put Teagan down and she assumed the "Downward Facing Dog" position for the first time. It freaked her out. She started doing a whiney cry so I picked her up. Later that week I put her on my yoga mat that is made of similar material and she did the same thing. The mat was giving her enough traction to get into that position but she had no idea how to get down so she freaked out. I bet that's what's going on with Tobey. He's surprised by his physical ability and isn't quite sure what to do with it. He'll probably get over it in a week or so. If he continues to do that for a few weeks and his mobility doesn't improve, then I'd have a good sit down with my doc.

The only thing he can do is scoot round in circles both on this back and belly. He can roll but he doesn't. His brother didn't crawl until he was 10 months but he was trying to walk from about 7 months.

I'm wondering if Tobey's standing issues are logistics...I mean he has tiny (sill in 0-3 month socks) feet and he's a bit on the chunky/tall side Lol But I'm defiantly going to bring up my concerns. Thanks ladies

He could be trying to get all the skills down. Ronin refused to crawl until he could get from hands and knees to sitting and back again. He doesn't like standing right now because he can't get himself down. Seeing as you are going in anyway I'd mention it, no harm in checking it out.

Aiden reminded me of something this morning. He's a worse stander now than he was 2 months ago! He used to be able to stand for a second without me holding him. Now he can't at all. He's super super wobbly even with me holding him around his torso. I think the better he is at crawling, the worse he's gotten in standing.
