my own preferance is Not to sleep with a 7week old......the risks are immense...this is the right time to get a routine going of bath and bed.....wrapped up in the cot and nice and snug..if the child is crying , a little rock or snuggle is ok...but leave the child in their own bed...or you will suffer later on..x good luck xView Thread
My 11 yr old son has had Perthes all his life and also in both hips.He lives on Paracetamol and Ibuprofen.He has had no treatment for this condition as we were told there was nothing could be done until he stops growing.He has also a 4cm difference in his leg length which means he has to wear a built up shoe.He is so very brave and tries to get by on a daily basis, even when he is in pain.He uses a wheelchair for longer distances, but walks when he can.Night time is the worst time, when he is resting he is in pain...He started High School in September and this is proving hard.His teacher in Science is refusing to allow him to sit down.I am so angry.I am already battling to get home to school transport and school to home again and feel i am ignored and not taken seriously.My son cannot fight himself so its up to me...Why dont people understand if a disabled child has needs then they need to be fulfilled without predjudice or judgement?View Thread
