I have a 14 month old with CP. He also cannot sit so in the bath tub I have a baby bath sponge and I run a little water in the bottom of the tub and lay him in the water. He loves it! The grocery store is hard. Sometimes I still use the carts with the baby seat on them. But, I have started strapping him in with the strap in the cart and making him work at holding himself up. Alot of times I have to put my purse next to him because he tends to fall to the side. If you want to talk feel free to e-mail me at anytime I would be happy to talk. Or if you want to talk in person e-mail me your phone #. It is hard, do the best you can! Everyday is worth it!
