sitting in a W position? There have been so many reports on why this is bad for a child from delays in speech development to sensory disorders (which is what I thought my daughter had but apparently is too young to diagnois...) I was told the reason why she sits like this is poor muscle tone... and there are exercises. So far not so good. I usually ask her to sit "criss cross applesauce" which gets her upset because I'm constantly checking on her.... but does anyone had this problem? Any exercises or tips to share?

I have never heard that this could cause delays. I sat like that my whole childhood! If you are really worried about this then reward her when you see her sitting crisscross applesauce. This way she will want to sit that way in order to get her treats.
