Hi I'm looking for some support. My 19 month old is a tip toer. She's not yet walking is under paediatric physio. We have just done 6 weeks of serial casting on her legs. We are now waiting for bloods to be done. They are testing for muscle disease but have said it's more to rule it out. She said she doesn't think it's CP but I've stupidly googled it today. She ticks a lot of boxes. We are in night boots and gaters. Her left leg has been fixed by the serial casting her right leg is really struggling. I'm beside myself with worry. Has anyone got a little one with mild CP??
Hello all! I wonder if anybody can advise me on independent PT and OT in Bristol area please. I need to have independent reports done as I'm going to fight for a decent school for my son . Any pointers? Thanks
We had a better Water Babies session yesterday. Third instructor in 4 weeks though - but I liked this one . Didn't go too fast and she asked about our individual needs and progress . DD2 did some fantastic underwater 'swimming' - propelled through water to instructor and can do monkey-monkey on her own (hold onto the side and hand-step along the edge).
Yes, I think we're fast approaching new thread time itsnothingoriginal. Would you like to do it, or any other takers? I'm too scardey-cat to assume such responsibility
I don't buy DD shoes over the internet as she has a myriad of fitting difficulties not least the low tone/CP/hypermobility stuff!! We go with John Lewis or I bought Kickers and Babybotte makes from Charles Clinkard if you have one nearby?
Is this thread running v slowly for anyone else's device? Wondering if it's the length of time to download now we're up to over 900 posts - shall we start a new one???
Happy CP awareness day everyone! Been wearing green today...
gonehaywire Re footwear - when DD was younger and just trying to stand/take supported steps I bought Babybotte shoes which were great - pricy but very supportive and more flexible than Kickers which DD found too stiff.
Is getting harder and harder to find supportive shoes as DD gets older - it's all about fashion for older girls and I see battles ahead with DD
Hi eyelet and welcome to the thread My DD is 6 and also has CP following a placental abruption at term. She's mildly affected - mostly balance and fine motor skills.
dd 21mo wants to stand up and take steps but she tends to walk on the outside of her feet with her ankles twisted. Her physio said to just get some ordinary boots. But what boots should I be looking at?
