Down Syndrome.... Lifting up their heads? 5 years= 5kids Due November 2; 4 kids; Sullivan, Missouri 2287 posts
12th Apr '12

Ok I will admit, I'm starting to feel like a bad mother. John is now 7 months old and still is not able to lift up his head. He gets lots of tummy time, we exercise him like the PT tells us too.. Still nothing. He is excelling at everything else though. He is eating well.. He's gained 2 lbs in 2 weeks which bring him up to 13.4 lbs. The doctor keeps asking me why he's not lifting up his head and learning to sit up by now. When I tried to explain to him that we see the PT twice a week and we work with him at home, he said "well obviously your not working with him enough". Has anyone else had this problem. The PT says it's just due to his low muscle tone in his neck, but the doctor made me feel like a idiot when I told him that.

I know.. He's the stupid fill in while our real pedi is away.. He aggravates me to the extreme. He doesn't say things like "a child with trisomy 21" or "a child with down syndrome" He says " a mongoloid child" UGG I just want to punch him in the face!!!

It took everything in me not too. But the guy was about 80 years old so he's stuck in the 60s....

WHAT! :shock:
I'd whoop his fucking ass right in the doctor's office. Someone who talks like that SHOULD NOT be able to practice. Period. He should be terminated.
