She's soo tiny at 13 months old and doesn't eat a whole lot! She still doesn't crawl or roll or do anything, she can sit up on her own, but that's about it! Even the doc has concerns!! Has anyone else ever experienced that with their children?? I need advice!!!

You can ask to have her evaluated through your special education district for your county. Aks your pediatrician for more info and referals... If your doctor has concerns too, ask what the next step is.

Have you contacted Early Childhood Intervention for your city/county to get her an eval?  If she qualifies (and she should) they'll provide any therapies she needs on a sliding scale based on income.  We pay a max OOP of $28/month for my son's speech therapy. 
They can provite speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and lots of other things.  Good luck.

What did the doctor say at her 12 month check up? I am sorry to say i haven't heard of this.... or experienced this. Her pediatrician should have mentioned to you what steps you should take to get her on track. Good luck momma.
