Meep so glad that your daughter is fine now. It is so hard when the doctors can't give you answers eh.

Superbriz thanks for the tips very helpful. The physio coming 15 Aug so not too far away. She is private and doing a home visit.

I have realised after massaging his hands last few days he doesn't clenched them as hard anymore except when stressed like tire etc. Just need him to to swipe and grab a toy now. He has reflux so haven't made him do much tummy time either which doesn't help.

We need to do a urine and blood test this week. Hopefully everything is fine. Will give you ladies updated.

Yes it was weird. I have bad anxiety AND I'm a proofreader, so I over-analyse everything and have an annoying attention to detail that is beyond that of most. I probably worried about it way more than I should have, but there was definitely something there, and the fact that she was still ahead or on time with all her milestones meant nothing to me! She also choked a lot while breastfeeding and on water - she's only just mastered cup drinking without drowning now aged 3. I was so worried her swallowing was off! I don't worry now, but it's a relatively new development for me.

The physio will REALLY help, I'm sure. They are amazing.

The massage sounds so promising. If he has reflux he may also have some pain of course which could be another cause of the tension. Reflux babies are often a little delayed too - harmlessly, but because they spend a lot of time feeling uncomfortable and having to be in certain positions to manage their symptoms, they might fall behind a little. He'll maybe be sitting soon and feeling a lot happier.

Looking forward to updates. I'm hopeful for you that it will be ok ...

Thanks ladies! I think we ate definitely going through wonder week is some sort. He is fighting sleep and blowing raspberries.

Meep I understand what you mean about over analysing. My son is arching back so I look into this and it could be developing issue but must commonly over tiredness. But before the brain scan can back I was like Oh no he may have something wrong.

Superbriz I hope this post helps someone down the track. Threads usually don't have conclusions eh.

Thanks ladies hopefully he catches up soon his big sister can't wait for him to play catch with her hehe

I had exactly the same worry with arching and no doubt looked at all the same webpages as you! But like I keep saying, she grew up to be totally 100% fine.

Paediatrician wants him to have a blood test. We went to the local blood test and boy it was a nightmare. There was 3 ladies in the room. One asked me has he fast? Hmm for how long 8 hours. I was like you joking 4 months baby fasting? Then they decided no need for a baby. Then they prod and squeeze baby for a vein. Two ladies felt it so it must be there. They poked my son he was screaming for a while already and worse when they poked. No blood then the lady moved the needle around and still no blood except from where they pierced his skin. I was crying my son was screaming. They decided to give up thank God and I gave him a feed.

Did you ladies have blood test for your babies? Left a message for our paediatrician whether is it really necessary. If so where can I go that they will do it quickly and accurately !

Oh bless him! One of mine needed a blood test young for jaundice and it was horrid, my head started to spin and I thought I was going to pass out in there whilst I was holding him! The physio sounds like an excellent route, I look forward to reading about his swift progress xx

Neither of mine has ever had a blood test, but I can imagine it is a horrible experience! I hope it isn't necessary to try again. Not sure it would really be likely to give you any answers anyway ... :/

My son had to have blood tests while he was poorly. They used a special ultrasound machine to find the vein, but we were in a very good children's hospital at the time. The phlebotomy department at the same hospital couldn't find a vein.

Another one to reassure you here. When my daughter was 5 months she still had clenched fists and wasn't batting on the play gym etc. I remember spending half the day on Google looking for 5 month old babies to see if they had clenched fists ...and hardly any did. My daughter also was arching her back a lot so I was convinced she had cerabal palsy. I was worried sick and drove my family insane for months. She was still clenching at 7 months. Anyway, she is now 4 and half and definitely doesn't have cerabal palsy or anything else wrong for that matter. She's a healthy, busy little girl so try not to worry. Easier said than done I know x
