I have a gorgeous 10 month old little boy. Since he was born, he struggled with tummy time due to reflux issues. I always did tummy time via different ways to help him (ie on my lap). Since he was a baby he has had strong neck control and has been able to hold his head up.
Approximately at 6 months old he learnt how to sit independently. That became his preferred playing style and every time I tried to do tummy time, he hated it. Then one day, he began to enjoy it again. Around the same time be began showing pre-signs of crawling - pushing up with his legs, holding his body up with his arms etc. since then he has very slowly progressed to turning his body around, pushing backwards (since stopped this), trying to get on all 4s and rocking but is unable to progress further (his leg seems to get stuck when he tries). He seems to struggle to get in to a sitting position from laying down and bearing weight on his arms.
I’ve been working with him (placing hand on his hip to assist him in sitting up, then repeating on the other side too), helping him balance on all 4s by supporting his legs, side playing with his legs facing the same way and popping him down in the parachute position. Is there anything else I can do to help him learn to crawl…?
