So my son is 6 months and 2 weeks old. I have carried him in a sling since birth. He is always in arms or in a sling - now that he's older I carry him in a wrap or ssc.
For about a week we have been staying with my parents while work is done on our house. Well my dad is all over me about leaving my son on the floor to play. My mom is doing exercises with with him every chance she can each day to get him to crawl. Mostly leading to my son getting upset and crying ...
Tonight at dinner w/ the inlaws my father in law (who is a Dr.) questioned where I put my son when I'm cooking and I'm like WHAT do you mean? and my MIL said "we're all worried because he's not crawling yet"...
Well, I know I'm frustrated with everyone. I want them to leave my son alone. I have never even looked at developmental charts or worried over milestones. I just don't know what to say to everyone.
Is there something wrong if my son is not crawling yet? Is me carrying him in arms bad for him now that he's getting older? Am I ruining everything?
I love him being "in arms" and he is actually the best baby I have ever seen. He smiles all day. He almost never cries. He is always so happy and calm. Whatever I'm doing is working and now everyone has me all freaked out.
Tell me! lol.
