I got told the same about my #2 and #3 babies, that they weren't getting enough floor or tummy time and it was going to stunt their progress. Well they had as much as my son did, they just haven't been as quick to do stuff as him because they are different people!

Sophie I think was about 8-9 months when she rolled, and that was considered REALLY late here, she pretty much did nothing till then. But she was up and about walking at 11 months so it seemed to even out.

I do think 10 months is pretty late to still just be doing nothing, but it's not your fault and don't let anyone make you think otherwise.

Thank you. I've been googling an now I'm getting very much worried. I'll definitely take him doctors as soon as I get an appointment

If you support him, will he sit with a straight back and neck? Like, when he is in the jumperoo, is his controlled in his back and neck?

I worked with a little boy who hated tummy time and would not roll over, but could sit and bum shuffled rather than crawled. He would bum shuffle to a table, pull to stand and started walking by 14months. It's not unusal to miss some milestones so try not to worry too much.

I hope you get some answers soon.x

Thank you for your reply. The HV put me off asking them because they made me feel like I wasn't being a good mum. He is my third so it's not the same that I can give him all my attention all the time but I do always do things around my children an I follow their lead. They can't seem to get that he genuinely really does hate tummy time. My mum suggested a walker for him so he could follow me around. I've not used one before but he is strong in his legs An can stand. I gave a feeling he'd start walking in it but I don't want to skip this initial stage because it doesn't feel right.

I've come across the term low muscle tone but he isn't a floppy baby. If anything he keep one arm really stiff.
Hello I agree with taking him back to your Dr and make a mention of how he holds his arm stiff aswell, he may have tightness in certain muscles which makes it really uncomfortable for him x

After being up all night and googling I have been worried about mild cerebral palsy. Managed to go doctors who has done hospital referral for the stiffness an no rolling.

Ceri- he a stand on his legs An is currently in my lap sitting, pulling himself forward. I pray he's just laid back baby an nothing is wrong with him.

That sounds promising! It might be that he can do it but doesn't want to. Glad you've got your referral 💗

My littles guy has one sided cerebral palsy
He has high tone in his right arm.
But low tone or weak muscles in trunk
U can hve a mix of high and low.
Hopefully it turns out to be just delay.
The gastro problems could hve held him back.
No wonder he doesn't like tummy time.
I've two refluxers who hated tummy time.
Id hate lying down if it made me throw up too.
Def better to get referral and hve him checked.
Will hopefully put your mind at ease.
Or worst case scenario get early help xxx

I also have a little one with hemiplegia (cerebral palsy affecting one side of the body). I second what others are saying. Do get him checked and mention the arm stiffness. It might not be anything like cp, but no rolling or sitting by this point would concern me. If there is some other physical reason for his discomfort they can work to resolve this and perhaps refer to a physio who will be able to help you with some exercises to strengthen the muscles he's struggling with. If his legs are strong it could be his core, so tummy time is best but if he doesn't tolerate it (maybe food/tummy issues?) then they will be best able to help you with alternatives, rather than a hv, who I find are well meaning but not very knowledge in this area. I'd been keen to push for a referral.

Edit: Sorry only just read properly that you got your referral!
