Hi there. This post is quite old...I found it while doing a search. I am wondering if anyone out there is still in the same boat?
My 16 month DD has yet to crawl. She also doesn't pull herself to a stand. She *loves* to walk while holding on to our hands, we've kinda "tricked" her into taking a solo step or two between 2 people, but nothing on her own. She will sometimes creep along the sofa, but it seems she doesn't have her balance (which would explain delayed walking, I guess). DD does scoot along on her bottom, not fast, but she does get around a little bit.
Some days I am at peace with her being "behind" with the mobility, and others (like tonight) I am freaking out. She has other health concerns as well (underweight, small head circumference, chronic constipation, extreme night waking). She doesn't say many words either, but I am way less concerned about that as she has recently added to her vocabulary.
I do believe that many, if not all, her health issues are related. We have seen a few doctors for initial visits, and she goes to the chiropractor, and we have recently taken her to a naturopath as well. I am looking into live blood analysis for the constipation problem. I don't know where to turn right now.: Or maybe I am making too much of everything. : She is a happy, bright, engaged little girl.
Thank-you for reading, and I would really appreciate any replies.
