LOW MUSCLE TONE? Please help

my LO is 10months+, yet cannot bear weight on his own, not crawling though sitting but sits bending with spine obvious. Any cause to worry? Anyone experienced this with LO? What did you do? Thanks

    See if you can schedule an evaluation with infants and toddlers. My LO due to medical issues has low muscle tone and qualified for PT from them. We also received physical therapy and occupational therapy. So your pediatrician may have some recommendations. With this services we do see a lot of improvement in her ability.

    Yes, you should speak to your pediatrician and get referred to CDSA (Child Development Services)- I’m sure most states have it. The evaluation is free and the my can arrange a physical therapy session- sounds like he might need a little coaching :)
