Does Your Child Do Any of These?
My son is delayed in motor skills due to his heart (which has greatly improved). However, there are some things he should be doing now or months ago but is not . Also, he does some rather unusual things, too. Keep in mind, he can feed himself table foods (just hasn't mastered spoon feeding), but everything else seems to be a struggle for him.
He has not crawled yet, his legs are still unstable and wobbly when trying to walk, or he will march like a soldier. He also moves his head back and forth rapidly, among a few other odd things. I was not concerned before but now I am beginning to worry.
I know he is smart because he knows how to work some electronics here, believe it or not (which surprises me). But, I am concerned with some things listed above.
I aim to talk to his pediatrician, but I am curious if other mothers have experienced this,
Some of the odd 'tics' (for lack of a better word) could simply him figuring out what his body can do.
I would stick with your plan and talk to the pediatrician. ;)
