So I always told myself I wasn't going to get all worried over milestones and I have been avoiding them online and in books but my almost 4 month old (in 4 days) isn't holding her head up when laying on her stomach. She has hated tummy time since the first day we tried it so I avoided it knowing she would cry and now occasionally lets me set her down now for about 5 minutes! When she is on her tummy she doesn't show any interest in lifting her head and I have tried a few 'tricks' to try and get her to - but she'll just move her eyes up at me or whatever I'm shaking, lol. I'm only a little worried because we go to the doctors in about a week for the first time since our midwife stopped the checks and I don't know how they will act towards this. She was 3 weeks early so I have been trying to reassure myself that this is why she seems behind. Should I be going by a chart for a younger baby?
I guess I'm just looking for some reassurance that my little chicky is just fine and maybe a little advice on how to handle the doctors. I have been purposely avoiding this day mostly because I knew it would be me going in alone and I really don't want to hear the doctors criticize how we choose to parent Aurora. I'm kind of a scardy cat :P
Thanks ahead of time, Mamas!
