Hi all. I was wondering if your child had any “strange” infant /toddler behavior? My son with TS was a C-section baby (my daughter was a C-section as well and has no symptoms) and a screamer. I say “colicky” but the doctor never labeled him with colic. Also, he spit up a lot — even from soy, so I went back to regular formula.
I tried alternating breast feeding with formula for two weeks, but had to stop since I spent most of my day not eating because I was pacing the floor as he slept — no nutrition from mom.
Even though he spit up a lot, he gained weight fine, so it really wasn’t an issue. My son ALWAYS wanted to be held but I had to stand. If I sat, he’d wake up screaming. (How the heck did he know I sat?) Fortunately for me, he did NOT want to lay in bed with us, or he’d probably still be there. :)
Yes, after the three-month mark the screaming was better. He still spit up until a little after 14 months and a couple months after switching to milk. He also put everything in his mouth for a really long time. Toys, paper, leaves, etc. He was a pretty good eater back then.
Now, almost 10, he’s quite picky and doesn’t eat cooked vegetables. Only raw! Well, I asked about infant/toddler behavior, enough about now. Thanks.
