We've had some "issues", her sleep is still in fits and starts and the slightest noise seems to wake her. I'm not sure if she needs her dosage upped a tad but we are struggling to get her to go the 4 hours between doses.
None of this has been helped by our new next door neighbours who decided to throw the mother of all parties last night, complete with banging screaming and running in and out of their front door in various states of undress.
Dh went round to them at 1.30am and thank god they turned the music down. I've tried to have a word this morning but even though I know they're up they are not answering the door
On top of all this the hospital have screwed up the amount of medicine they've given us and it will, in all likelihood run out before their pharmacy opens on Monday.
Phew thank god for a mini rant Bet you're sorry you asked now DOG
My DS was born after exposure to drugs and alchohol but was actively withdrawing (thank God). He came to me at 8 weeks.
He didnt sleep through for a VERY long time (sorry). He wanted to be fed very small amounts 1oz every hour. I am not sure how much of this was the drugs and how much was the insecurity he was feeling.
Have you spoken to the paediatrician responsible for LAC in your LA? Our one is lovely and knows LOADS about drug addicted babies. She is very approachable and has always been willing to get me info when I have needed it.
Hope your little one settles soon. It sounds like you are doing a fab job.
Its hard to say with my DS. He has learning difficulties, auditory processing disorder and developmental delay. How much of that is due to the drugs, the neglect or genetic factors is impossible really.
I know b.mum didnt have a habit. She wasnt a junkie, more of a binge user.
DS doesnt have the adhd sorts of behaviours often associtated with drug exposure. But we are trying to get him out of mainstream schooling because he is struggling so much.
