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 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 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
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?
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.

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.
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.
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 But I'm defiantly going to bring up my concerns. Thanks ladies
