Hi girls I'm looking for some advice please re- little one head control. He is 11 weeks and while he has some control over his head it's still a bit floppy. I'm starting to worry. Should I? He is very alert. Kicks his legs and waves his arms with vigor, smiles and babbles away to you when you talk to him, reaches for and holds toys in front of him whilst in his bouncy chair. When I put him on his tummy he hates it, lifts his head a bit. I had a third degree tear and then an abscess so up until recently I've fed a lot laying down with him, on our sides. I've not really done tummy time as I've had a lot of health issues, but also because my daughter didn't do it either(I wasn't told about it back then and she's 4) and she developed quickly. My boy is very laid back and I probably don't carry him as much and he's spent more time laying down playing with me. He is also a big baby and weighs about 14/15lbs He was admitted to hospital this week after having high fever after immunisations and tested for serious infections, even had to have a lumbar puncture. thankfully he got the all clear and it was just a cold virus brewing on top of his jags. Anyway, I asked a couple of the peadiatric doctors about his head control and hey said he's doing fine and they all develop differently. They all said he was very bright and alert and one even said he was a chunky wee thing who looks like he has been on the mince and potatoes! They said just to do tummy time. I never worried about my daughter development, she was fast at everything and a wee petite thing who was very fussy and I carried her constantly. But now I'm worried a bit bout my boy.
