Infants Aged 7 Months Have Not Been Able To Lie On Their Stomach, Sit And Mumble?
Good afternoon …
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
At the age of 7 months, skills that have been developed in children include:
Gross motor skills: on his own stomach, sitting alone without support / support
Fine motor skills: moving objects from one hand to the other hand, holding objects including the thumb,
Language skills: muttering one syllable (monosyllabic babble, for example: ma, pa), following one-step instructions with gestures / gestures
Personal-social skills: staring at his own hands, putting food in his own mouth (self feed), starting to learn to wave the sign of parting (dah-dah / bye bye)
According to the information you have given about the condition of your child's development, it does not rule out the possibility that there will be disturbances / delays in gross motor development. If even until the age of 8 months your child is unable to lie on his own stomach, it is a sign of alarm (red flag) which indicates that the child must be immediately checked for development to a pediatrician.
So, we strongly recommend you to monitor your child's development for 1 month, and immediately to bring your child to a pediatrician if you reach the age of 8 months and still cannot lie on his own stomach. The aim is to be able to be evaluated directly by a doctor, and later planned therapy to catch up (catch up) its development.
As a suggestion, you as a parent should give your child ASI and complementary foods that are nutritionally balanced on a regular basis, as well as provide time to teach children skills appropriate to their age. To enrich insights, you can read articles about child development. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
