Just in need of some advice please ( kindda long)
hi, my name is ashley i am new to cafemom. I have 20month old son, who hasn't been diagnosed, with any type of specal needs yet. Before i ask my quetion i would like to make it clear that I am not trying to be disrepectfull at all. I know that i need to talk to his doctor(witch i have) i am just tring to do some recherche of my own, and what better place then mommy's with specal need children.
with that said i would like to give you all some backgrowend info on my son, and just see what you all think. He has always been a veary cranky baby, from day one. Has never taken naps, and up until he was 12months didnt sleep veary well at night. (now he will sleep all night, but still no naps)
He always has to have something to eat, he will eat anything. if he isnt eating something he is normaley screaming for food. He has always been very tempermintle. He will be just fine on min then the next scraming and throwing a fit, headbutting you, or hiting you, he also likes to hit his head of stuff. ( i am scard he is going to really hurt his self) all you have to do to set him off is look at him.
there are days that he is supper loveable and loves talking to people (even strangers) then he has days to when some one says someting to him he is scream and hit hit them. He Hates being loved on (huged, kissed) he will scram and fight you if you try
He was a late to crawl and walk. He was 10 months when he crawled for the first time and 17 months befor he walked. I have talked to his doctor about it at first they said it was his formula so they swiched it about 5 times, then they said he was coliky(sp?) then now that he is older they have set me up with a beahavior specialits, he has only gone twice (so maybe i need to give it more time) but all they seem to be working on with him is his speach ( witch i belive he dons't have a problem with)
what are your thoughts, on this do you think he is just being a normal kid or do you think there is more to it?
what are some tip/steps that i can take in being able to contrule/handle him better?
Thanks in advance, any advice or input is welcom.
(sorry for bad spelling, i suck at it lol)
