My husband worked in fuel cell (climbing into the fuel tanks on tankers (refuling planes) to fix them) for about 3 years. Well after about a so long it can cause problems with yoru babies. A few women that are married to guys in his old shop who's kids have sensory problems and other mental and physical disabilities. My daughter will be 1 on the 30th. I've been told that doctors can't diagnose it this young. She will falls and hits hard and doesn't cry unless we make a face looking worried. She hits her self. She's very rough about things that should be gentle (more than other babies her age, she aggressive about it). There are so many other things that she does that are like my friends child who has sensory deprovation. My friend told me to get her checked because she noticed she's like that. I am planning to but I am curious what else should I look for? Does anyone have a child with this problem?Answer Question

Babies can be tested for and treated by occupational therapists for sensory issues. My son started being treated when he was around 12 mo.
In order for your husband's work to cause problems in children his sperm would have to have genetic damage. With that kind of work he would have to use protection. I doubt he has genetic damage from his job. If his job does, why in the world is he doing it? If a job is bad enough to cause genetic damage in sperm it could cause cancer and premature death from other causes. No amount of money should be worth it.
