my DS will be 1 in a couple weeks and I am having some major concerns about his development. Let me start off by saying that I know every child is different and they all hit their milestones at their own pace but the longer this goes on the more concerned I get.
DS has always hit his milestones late and still doesn't do a lot of the things he 'should' be doing. He wouldn't sit unassisted until 7 months and still will not put himself into a sitting position. He will only army crawl and didn't start until about 9 months (he has recently started rocking back onto his knees but will immediately fall down). He won't feed himself with the pincher grasp and he doesn't try to pull himself up, infact, he hardly has any interest in standing up with help and he keeps his legs stiff when you try to hold him up and make him "walk".
The other thing that worrys me is his speech, he will babble mama and dada but he wont say it to us or call to us, he doesn't want to wave bye either. He claps, signs for more and does "so big" but doesn't seem interested in much else. His birthday party is in 2 weeks and he seems more like a 6mo old to me then a 1 yr old so it seems to be bothering me more knowing that other people might notice this at his party and wonder what's going on.
His well check is coming up on the 20th but I'm having major anxiety that the Dr. is going to finally say he needs PT or that he has low tone or something. Has anyone experienced these sort of set backs? I would like to know what, if anything I can do, I want to give him as much of a push as possible. Any thoughts on this?
