Baby development milestones
I had an eye opening experience regarding baby development milestones which many other parents can benefit from. Our baby was not sitting, crawling, etc. at 11 months. His pediatrician did not have any new suggestions for us, and did not find any problems after seeing the child several times for check ups, a cold, shots, etc. A state agency who helps with possible baby developmental delays for 0-3 year olds suggested, THANKFULLY, that we see an Ear, nose and throat specialist. This wonderful doctor found that fluid was trapped inside the baby's ear tube and probably had been for a LONG TIME. The baby didn't have a fever, or any other signs of fluid and it couldn't be seen, so it was missed by his pediatrician. He thought this might be the reason he was not sitting yet. He took care of the problem and within a week after that, the baby was sitting! Shortly after that he started to crawl.
Bottom line is, we had been working on the wrong problem. Don't make the same mistake we did. Find out if this is your baby's problem. This could have been done months before, if we had known.
