Does your child always have their tongue out when they are concentrating or ‘w’ sit on the floor? Do they flop all over the furniture or tire quickly? Do they have trouble standing or sitting still?
These are all signs that your child may be suffering from low muscle tone like my gorgeous man Jack here.

Low muscle tone is term commonly used by doctors, occupational therapists and physiotherapists. It is generally something you are born with or occurs very early in infancy. It refers to the stretchiness or tension of the muscles in a person’s body.
