So I babysit a very close friend's daughter full time. She is now 10 months old and I'm growing very concerned. She refuses tummy time, and has not begun to even try to crawl. She doesn't pull herself up, although she grabs things she wants. She babbles but so far has not tried to say mama or dada. Her biggest accomplishment at this point is shes waving. Shes fussy ALL THE TIME, and throws fits if you aren't holding her. Like constantly.
Now, telling her mom that her child is anything but perfect is not really a possibility. do I have cause to be concern? Should I say something at this point, or wait a little longer?

well, it's not the average for children to walk at 10 months (although 2 of mine did, but that is not the norm. normal time is over a year actually). she is refusing tummy time and can't crawl because she's being held too much. since you are babysitting her full time you can get her more independent by not holding her as much and giving her toys, etc. to play with that interest her and she will have more incentive that way.
