Quoting Trinityandbraydensmom:" They freaked out on me because my 7 month (5 month adjusted) wasnt crawling :-/ we go back next week ... [snip!] ... next week and hes 9 months now and still not crawling! he can hold him self up just isnt crawling. i hate how rude they are!!"
My son is 10mo (7 adjusted) and he isn't crawling yet either. Not even attempting at this point. he can roll over and sit independently (just recently) but no attempts at crawling and his occupational therapist is just fine with it. She said the doctors looks at charts and statistics and that is it, they don't give each baby an opportunity to grow and develop at their own pace and are quick to start talking delays especially with preemies. I hate his follow up appointments because it is like they expect performance on demand. My son has excellent motor skills ex. transfering toys from one hand to the other, clapping, playing peek a boo with a blanket and grasping with pinchers but when asked to do so by a stranger on demand he is shy and doesn't respond so they act like he has delays which we (his parents and his OT) know couldn't be father from the truth. They can be very rude. Oh and his older half sister never crawled--she went from rolling across the room to walking, no crawling inbetween. Every kid is different i don't know why doctors don't give that any consideration.
