My daughter isn’t crawling yet: Advice?

She will be nine months old on Feb 10th. She gets from point A to point B by scooting around on her belly. She’s meeting all her other milestones. I know not all babies crawl, but my other two did, but I feel like it’s important for her to get the balance and strength. Every time I try to get her up on her knees, she flattens out. She is ALWAYS on her belly- so the amount tummy time isn’t an issue. I try several times a day to try to get her to balance on her hands and knees. My other kids just “did it” Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

My 4-month-old refuses to hold his head up: Thoughts?

I have a 4-month-old baby, and he refuses to hold his head upon his belly during tummy time or use his arms to push up. The dr says he has great muscle tone and strength in his arms and legs. He can hold it up some on his belly( does better with use of boppy) but just not real high. He can hold it up sitting in my lap or when I let him stand on my lap. He also tries to sit up on his own while I’m holding him, I joke and say he is doing crunches because that’s what it looks like. It’s just during tummy time. He is still wobbly, but that’s ok. I was late starting tummy time. I didn’t start it till he was two months and if he gets mad, I pick him up, so I’m sure that’s part of it too. Do any other moms experience this? If so, did they eventually just do it and go on to crawl ok? Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

I am worried my 2-month-old isn’t meeting their milestones: Advice?

Hi. My baby will be 2 months old tomorrow and he goes for his appointment and shots Thursday which made me look up to see what milestones he should be meeting.

Should I be concerned with how little my 2-year-old is talking?

My daughter says about 15 words including mama and daddy, and 3 sentences. I’m just curious if she could have a speech delay? She used a TON of gibberish, she can go on and on…She can’t communicate her needs to us and still just cries and screams. She listens to commands and seems to understand us when we talk, but isn’t using her words. She is 2 years old and 4 months.

My mother in law said my child is “slower” than most because he is breastfed: Thoughts?

Has anyone ever been told your baby I “slower” because he/she is breastfed? I exclusively breast-feed mainly from the breast because I am a stay at home mom and just haven’t had the need to actually pump he is always with me. Anyways my mother-in-law said that he is “slow” because he couldn’t hold a bottle or toy. Which he can do both he only spent 2 hours with her today (I pumped a bottle for him) I only left him so she could spend time with him. I was just curious if anyone else has anything like that before. Anonymous Community MemberThis question was asked by a Facebook community member who has asked to remain anonymous.

Ten Months After Baby Boy Was Born Without Skin, Mom Is Finally Allowed to Kiss Him

A baby boy born without skin is continuing to thrive after his parents fought for his right to live. When Priscilla Maldonado and Marvin Gray first learned they were expecting their third child together, they took comfort in knowing all of his tests came back normal. However, at 37-weeks gestation, a routine scan revealed that their baby boy had stopped gaining weight and his heart rate had begun to slow.

Their baby boy, Ja’bari, was born weighing just three pounds on January 1. His skin had only formed on his head, face, and parts of his legs and arms, feet, and hands were fused together and his eyes were fused shut. In an interview with the San Antonio Express-News, Maldanado recalled Ja’bari’s birth being “completely silent” and unlike anything she experienced while giving birth to her two older children. Not sure if Ja’bari would survive or ever recover, doctors told Maldanado and Gray that they should consider “pulling the plug,” something the parents could never even consider doing. In an interview with ABC …
