    Tess saw the physiatrist today

    We are thrilled that Tess has finally started to crawl a little bit. She has been getting all over the house for weeks, but not doing and actual crawl motion. Now she will do that. She's getting more secure in standing, but still not cruising at all. She still has never rolled from her back - not ever!!!

    She saw a physiatrist from U of M today. This woman was wonderful with her and with me. She had me take her down to her onsie so she could see her body as she moves. She reassured me that she is capable of rolling and for some reason chooses not to. She gave me some ideas to encourage her. She also gave me some ideas to encourage her to start cruising. She said that her muscle tone is a little low, but not really anything to be concerned about. I will be in contact with the physical therapist from the ISD in a few months to follow-up and possibly to do further consultation.

    The physiatrist reassured me that normal range for walking is up to 18 months and was confident that Tess will be walking by then.

    Hoping that she'll continue to show signs of improving and getting on track.

    I am sure you are concerned but glad you got good news. I was a nanny for a child that NEVER crawled and one day (almost 2) she just got up and WALKED!
    Go figure. Probably just look at it as your easy child, one less to chase

    Hi


    Glad you got very encouraging news. My friends DS only started walking at 20 months. He is perfectly fine just loved crawling more but not the normal position but on his bum.

    Glad you got good news and I wouldn't worry too much. My dd is almost 13 months and isn't walking and rarely walks down the couch or anything. She would rather crawl. She is a very impatient thing and it's easier for her to crawl then try to figure out the whole walking thing.

    Did you mean physical therapsit and not psychiatrist? Don't worry about the crawling. DS stood up and held onto furntiture then walked at 15 months then he started crawling!!!! The baby had tortocollis and got PT for it from 2-6 months of age and I thought he would crawl late because he turned over toward the latter range. He was crawling at 7-8 months and walking at 9 1/2 months! There are exercise that you can do to help them turn over, crawl, and walk. We got pages when we left for all of those and I didn't even need to use them, but I thought I would have to. Good luck!
