Just to update from our appt on Thursday. It went well; the lady was lovely. She confirmed again she has low upper body/arm muscle tone but she was happy with the progress she's been making (now able to get from lying to sitting and in the last week being able to pull up onto her knees).
She said she should get there albeit more slowly than most bubs and gave us some exercises to do. These included introducing cushions for her to try to crawl over as well as small steps for her to try to pull herself up on so we'll keep doing that
Also using a big couch seat cushion and getting her to crawl off that (so she has to put pressure on her arms)..... she just slid like a seal and face planted the first time
She said her legs were strong though and bub proved that yesterday by taking a teeny tiny step while pushing her walker
Thanks for your support; it was good to get more information and know that although she'll be a bit behind she will get there!
