Hi all to followed my earlier post about my dd not rolling. Well she is not sitting either and is now 8mths just over 7 corrected. So I went to child youth and health as I had expressed concerns about her rolling. She will roll from tummy to back but not the other but it doesn't always happen. I had expressed concerns because she splays her arms to the side and I am actually concerned that she has an issue with her shoulder so I was refered from the child youth and health nurse to their physio. I went there yesterday and basically got told well I am not going to waste my time teaching her to roll as she should have been doing this from 4mths and well now she should be sitting already. She was very abrupt. I mean I knew my daughter was behind but I was there because of her rolling not her sitting and I was there because I thought her shoulders were the cause of her not rolling as she doesn't position her arms in the right spot to roll. you know how they kind of need to have their arms infront. well my daughter keeps trying to roll onto her shoulder and doesn't seem to want to move it. and it is more one side than the other. She was delivered via c section and I know they struggled to get her out. I am thinking maybe a muscle was tightened to deliver. Anyway the physio didn't examine her as such she just told me what was wrong with her and I was told not to use a jolly jumper, not to use her activity play thing where she can jump and sit and spin. She only would spend 5 maybe 10mins max in there. My daughter has always since 3mths done abdominal crunches and when ever her brother runs by or she wants to see her brother, aparantly that is a huge no no along with arching her back especially if she is tired or is starting to learn tantrums she arches her back. I felt so defeated. Instead of telling me why those things were no good I just felt I got slapped on the wrist. In terms of exercises for my daughter she did them. She didn't show me so when I tried to do she told me off as I thought I was pulling her up into the sit by her shoulder instead the physio told me off and said don't pull her by the arm. Frankly I don't feel comfortable pulling her into a sit by her shoulder if there is an actually issue with her shoulder how is pulling going to help. So instead of actually looking into why Iwas there and examining her. i was just told she was behind. Is anyone else out there not have there bubs sitting at 8mths? or rolling. As far as I am concerned yes my daughter is behind by the norm but it doesn't mean anything is wrong. Oh and standing on her feet is a big no no. Mind you put her on her feet and she moves her feet up and down. I think my daughter just wants to go but doens't want to do the all between things. I am so cross and angry with this very unpleasant women and if I have to go back I think I will loose my temper at her.
