I know babies all go at their own pace, and I will be discussing this with his pediatrician when we finally go to his 6 month checkup next week. But I was curious if anyone else's LO is struggling to reach the physical milestones.
DS is over 6 months now, and he still does not roll in either direction. He has rolled tummy to back twice, but I think both times were accidents. He still face plants and cries during tummy time. He fares better on his back, and twists his body trying to roll but he can't ever make it. He doesn't sit up without support for longer than a second or two. And he doesn't bear any weight on his legs. When in his jumper he keeps them tucked up like landing gear. We pull them down and try to encourage it but he's just not having it. Same when you hold him up to try and "stand" on your lap.
I think I asked about his refusal to use his legs before, and several of you pointed out that if he's very verbal, maybe the other stuff is just coming later (he babbles all day long, so he's definitely developing his verbal skills!)--but I am really worried about the fact that he's not even rolling yet, I feel like by 6m2w he should at the very least be doing that. Am I wrong? :-(
My sister suggested we might end up in physical therapy. Has anyone else had to do that?
