    Good idea. He likes scrambling on the mats at the playgroup - I'll make an effort to go regularly and hope he gets inspired.

    Ha ha! That's exactly what people said I should do. Sew a cleaning cloth to his tummy and get him to clean the floor as he goes!

    Maybe that's where the inspiration for the robovac came from? A frazzled mum watching a baby shimmying randomly over a floor that she wished someone else would vacuum

    Not sure if it has already been suggested, but if not, what about a tunnel? We have a soft one from Aldi or Ikea that really initiated our baby girl to explore the house. We put balls & toys in it, called out to her from the other end.

    And thanks for the reassurance. 99% of me knows he's normal and fine, but unfortunately the 1% got prodded by a well meaning person and it made me second guess that I shouldn't be trying harder to help him out. As you say, I'm sure he'll get there regardless - when he's ready
    dont worry too much...I was alot like you...had that small part of me thinking what am I doing wrong...what else can I do . 2 friends of mine have DDs same age as mine and they did all physical milestones before DD did...that drove me insane! But she did catch up and is no different from them !
    My sisters a physiotherapist and said some bubs generally take time doing physical tasks...its the over all approach that you should see..are they moving their arms properly, any hip dysfunction, are the trying to get from one place to another (whether crawl, bum shuffle, holding onto things etc) than not to worry.
