I hope I've posted this in the right area.
I'm just wondering if someone could provide me with some information regarding low muscle tone.
I've looked online but I'd like to hear personal experiences (if you're comfortable in sharing).
I have a 3yo DD and a 4mo DD and I think my eldest was quite strong from birth and I shouldn't compare but its so hard not to! My 4mo is quite active, loves to kick her legs and wave her arms about. She can grasp an object and she can hold her head up when on her tummy but she can't do a mini push up with arms extended. She can roll onto her back from her tummy but not every time. She can bear weight on her legs too but not for a long time.
I guess what concerns me a little is sometimes when I hold her she feels like she's slipping a bit from under her arms and her head can dangle down when held upright for a while. I mentioned this to the health nurse and she put her on her belly and saw her push her head up and said there was no problem.
I guess when I read back it probably seems okay but I'm just not used to a baby who can't control her head all the time!
I was just wondering if your child has low muscle tone and if so how was it picked up. Could they do some things like push up from belly but not others like bear weight on legs or hold their head up properly?
Thanks in advance
