Hi all

Hoping someone can help here and tell me if their babies had poor head control at almost 8 months! I'm struggling with DS, one minute he seems to have it then all of a sudden gone!!

I must also say for his age hes very small only 11lb 7 even tho hes on Nut2 and will shortly be going on Infatrini, he also has a problem with his kidney! I dont know if anyone has had a similar experience but any info would help!

Hi there.
Have you had a referral to the paediatrician for your DS head lag? If not, request one. My DD was seen at 16 weeks because of concerns about mild head lag (she was 4 weeks prem) and low weight. Now at 24 weeks it is much better. She is still "head heavy" though, as is still diddy-weighs 12.5lbs.

If you lay him on the floor and pull him up by his arms, does his head engage straigh away and follow, or does it lag behind?

I would ask for a referral to a paedeatrician just to be on the safe side. DS (now 7 months) had really pronounced head lag until about 5 months, and it's slowly got better. He had a battery of tests and nothing was found. It can be completely normal but better to get it checked out, especially with the other issues you mention.
