Often parents have questions regarding what is developmentally “normal” for the muscles of their baby / toddler. The following links are intended as a means of picturing what is structurally sound (at the 6 month mark) versus what is not. It is recommended that if your child falls into the Atypical group in any category that they be seen by your pediatrician or family healthcare practictioner as soon as possible for follow up. This site also has other ages and stages you may find helpful. Again, if you have questions consult your child’s health care provider. Early intervention can prevent a lifetime of structural challenges. Left unrecognized and untreated children can face a lifetime of needless physical, emotional and mental struggles. Remember as a parent, you are your child’s best advocate.
