lisabees Posted December 27, 2011 Share Posted December 27, 2011 BIL lives in California. I have never seen his first-born little girl until Christmas Eve. She is beautiful and happy. MIL is worried about her and asked me for my opinion. Baby was born with legs spread very far apart - like frog legs. Dr said there was no problem. He still does. They have never gone to a specialist of any kind. Baby spent the entire time (about 7 hours minus a short nap) in a bouncy seat (the infant kind that allows a child to sit and relax) or leaning back in someone's arms. She never made a peep, except for blowing lots of raspberries. Her movements were slow. She batted at her bouncy seat toys every once in a while. She was perfectly content. Never wanted to get out. She cannot sit. Cannot crawl. And doesn't even try to push up into a standing position if she's on someone's lap. She holds her head up fairly well, although her parents hold onto her head when putting her back in the bouncy seat. I never saw her hold/pick up any toys. I asked to hold her and I was shocked when she felt like dead weight. MIL wants to know what I think, so she can talk to them. I don't know anything about it, but she must have low muscle tone, right? I'm not sure if it has to do with her frog legs, though. Any thoughts?
