  • Maybe your doctor isn't concerned because she was born early, but I would definitely get a second opinion. The crawling doesn't worry me as much, becuase some kids just skip crawling and go straight to walking. However, by now she should have been able to sit.

  • you have to consider her adjusted age, she may be 11 months old but really she is 8&1/2...look to see what the average 8month old is doing and see where she stands. I had preemie twins, they are all caught up at 5yrs old, but my daughter didnt crawl until a year and walk until 18 months, my son walked at 15 months...a far cry from their older brither who was on time, walked at 9 months and RAN at 10!

  • I would look into getting a 2nd opinion as Crafty26 suggested. Preemie's develop at different rates, I was 9 weeks early and I was about 18 months old before I was caught up with everything except my hearing - I had a lot of ear infections and had tubes twice (the first ones fell out too early).
