ok so i work @ a pre school & i've been in this field for a very long time but now i have a 7 month old who looks like he's only 3months old. He cant not sit up, not even try, when we do "Tummy Time" he has absolutely NO arm strength & just screams, no leg strength & you can feel his back bone so bad, he is so skinny, his feet stay blue so i keep him wrapped up in a blanket & massage his legs & feet. he can hardly even sit in a bumbo with out slouching over, cries all the time. He can not hold his own bottle, doesnt even try & when i feed him he stays in the fetal position. Now I absolutely refuse to ask his mom if something is wrong, she'd FLIP OUT!! plus its not my place & i feel as though IF something really is wrong then she would let me know so i know what im working with. i work with him constantly & i get NO WHERE!! he eats 8oz every 3-4 hrs!!! pls does anyone know what this could be?Answer Question

I got 1 question for all the moms who said report her to child services,what is she reporting,"yes, I'm working with a baby who look small and he can't hold his head up"my goodness ,if, you are really concerned and you are the teacher and not the teacher-aide,why don't you just asked her,tell her what you just told us,that you were concern.simple as that,this is not a child service case ladies.He could be a preemie,who hasn't caught up,it could be MS or CP,or nothing.
