Hello ladies,

our wonderful Dr. (no sarcasm) recently said that DD had slightly poor muscle tone in her arms. She was quite underweight at the time, and has since put on 2 lbs.

I'm wondering if her poor muscle tone was associated with her poor weight gain, and, if it will change as she gains more?

Is there anything we can do to encourage better muscle tone? Margaret is about 6.5 months old, and is definitely meeting her social milestones.

Suggestions, and been-there-done-that stories are more than welcome!

thank you

You could try wearing her in a sling or baby carrier (if you don't already). She will naturally use her muscles to balance and cling and you move.
