Carter had one done at 2 and it was clear, but now I am hearing that he should have it at 3 or 4 again. Anyone able to substantiate this? We had ot get a new ped and his statement was he will certianly look into it, but no matter what it says, if we want it we got it (I like him ). I don't relish the idea fo giong through that again, tho, especially not for poor Carter. It was not fun for anyone. What do you all know bout it?
Can you try the neb? MUCH better! My cousin's baby had that and misdiagnosed - none of the warning signs like prematurity, on oxygen, nothing but he got it anyway! I'm sorry you all have to go through that!
I had sinus surgery due to extended rounds of antibiotics and antib's that were not specifically for the sinuses so it never really killed it off. So two answers, yes, he may hve still had it (I did!) and too many antibiotics are not a good thing. As an idea, once he is off this round, maybe you coudl talk to the doctor about probiotics. They can be great at warding off chronic problems. I know a little girl with spina bifida who kept getting UTI's and once she went on probiotics she hasn't had one in 6+ months.
Carter had that with the vacuum for while. He's over it now, but that or when people laulgh and he doesnt' know what we are laughing at he cries very pitifully when he isn't in on the joke. I dont' know what that is all about. The laughing doens't phase him, but other people when he doesn't expect it hurts his feelings (or ears?). I don't know!
I will say personally there are noises I can't STAND! Mostly t he ones described here - crowd noise or basically loud and unnecessary noise makes me nuts. It coudl just be a personality trait.
I don't have experience in this area, but I am glad to see you are looking into a holistic as well as medical treatment. I am not a huge crunchy granola type, but I think that balance is something everyone needs in life and to look at everything as having possible marits is a smart thing to do. I have Carter on a high antioxidant diet which includes flaxseed oil and it can't hurt, might help. One of his best therapist ever was a holistic healer who did feldenkrais on him. She did more for him in 6 months than some of these people did in twice that long.
He was 12 months then got 8 in 6 weeks. They were the two front top and bottoom and molars. Then nothing for a while, then he got his 2 year molars at 18 months then the front ones "filled in" byt the time he was a little over 2. Some of those front ones are very pointy and he is missing one incisor, but has it on the other side, but the one that showed up is in a row of it's own. Hello, orthodontia bills, but coming form this family, that was a given anyway!
Incidentially - his little sister has ten teeth at 14 months. The four in front on the top and bottom and...molars! They are following about the same teething pattern so far, but it's differfent from the "norm" so maybe it's a familial trait!
There are some heraing centers around here that work on a sliding scale - maybe there are some around you as well? You could always call the old EI people and ask who they use. They can usually help direct you to find funding, even after your child ages out. Good luck! That is one heck of a lot of money every year!
