I just had my lo's 9 month well visit today. They recommended he be evaluated by early intervention for the following reasons: (please keep in mind he was 1 month premature)
Does not crawl
Cannot go from a sit to stand position
Cannot go from a lay down to sit position
Does not cruise along furniture
Does not hold his own bottle or sippy cup
Does not wave bye, bye or hello
Can pick up very small objects like finger foods but will not put in his mouth.
I am a nervous wreck about this! What has been your experiences with early intervention with a baby this young? What do I expect? Pedi said he would benefit from occupational and physical therapy as well as possible speech therapy.

Most babies can wave byebye at 10 months - 2 months away for you still.
Most babies have a pincer grasp by 10 months - 2 months away.
Keep the apointment since your doctor may be seeing something more than you describe but based on what you say, your little guy isn't really behind at all.
