Im childminding a 10 month old boy.He doesnt crawl,gets very upset when I put him on his front and when I change his nappy he is extremely stiff and all tense.
I dont have vast experience with children so have not come across this before.He does not seem to respond to much,he smiles now and again.This may sound awful and I dont mean it horrible but it seems like he's not all there!
He just doesnt look very with it.He seems much less developed than my friends 7 month old.I understand that all children develop at different times and I should not compare but it is only to get an idea of what stage "most" children are at at his age.What do you think anyone?
i wouldn't necessarily be worried about not wanting to go on his front.
the little girl i used to care for HATED being on her front. she would just lie spreadeagled and cry with her face in the floor.
she never crawled... she bumshuffled!
she just only liked being upright so she could see everything!
He NEVER feels relaxed! He always feels stiff and tense,when he reaches out for things he doesnt look relaxed.He is so content just to sit doing hardly anything which is good for me at times.His posture appears tense.Parents havent said anything at all.Iv only had him for a week.They have a 3 year old girl aswell and she seems fine.
