My daugher is 7months old and was just evaluated by PT for failing to meet her gross motor milestones (can't roll over/push up yet) They also mentioned that she has some delay in fine motor skills as well. My ped called her hypotonia "mild." She is by far not a floppy baby, has normal tone at birth and now can somewhat sit unsupported for a minute or so prior to falling over. Overall her diagnosis is hypotonia and torticolis presumably causing these delays. I have a hard time coming to grips with what all this means in the long run. I had an uncomplicated full term pregnancy but she was born 5lb 4oz for some unknown reason. She is gaining weight nicely and seems normal with her social development and can bable in 2 sylable combos. Hubby and I were tested for many gentic conditions pre-conception so I know she cannot have any Ashkenazi related metabolic problems or CF. I want to know if any other moms out there have babies with "mild hypotonia" and any of these other problems and how their babies are doing, or what they have done to help their babies catch up.
