My 12 month old can sit, roll around and bring himself into sitting position. he has always rocked his head from side to side which throw him off balance occasionally now that he sits. Googled long ago- I quickly ruled out Autism as he had no other sign and went with self soothing . He is not crawling yet or even attempting to pull himself into standing position. Ped say he has high muscle tone and hyper extend his knees. When I hold him in standing position he often has rigid legs and stands on tippy toes. He seems far from walking. He's very active and gets around rolling twisting but not a normal crawl. My son interacts very well with us smiling, babbling, playful and fun. My son sleeps and eats well. He uses fine motor skills and seems very bright, He tuned out the Ped.at appt.when she was calling his name, she asked how often he does that, sure it's been more than a few time but he's only12 months so only 6 months really count?? He has no vocabulary yet, but again babbles, laughs ect.. Ped.says each individual issue is not a concern but all together is a red flag. She has recommended many tests MRI, hearing, PT, blood work-cromo test. Should I follow through with all these tests and disrupt his happy little life or can I wait until he is 17 month and see if he walks and talks within the norm Could I miss out on early intervention if I wait a few more months? Friends and family say go with my gut. I get a stomach ache when I think of my little man being poked and prodded and I get a stomach ache thinking I would deprive him of any help. Guts not working, hearts interfering. Need your help!!
