Early CP signs in my preemie. Any advice?
Morning all. My daughter was born at 28 weeks gestation. She had a grade 2 bleed on the brain along with some damage, this showed sign of repair around her due date which was reassuring. She's 7 months old now, 4 months corrected. She can't roll, though she tried desperately. Nor can she laugh. She has severe reflux and has had swallowing difficulties in the past. She has a weaker right hand side, significantly her right arm hits herself in the face often (her bleed was her left side of the brain so we were told it could effect her right side) she also has a lack of mobility to her arms. She'll use her legs to try and roll and uses her legs and feet to hit her toys to play instead of her arms. She also has shaken legs at times. I'm aware these all point to CP signs. Just wondered how common they were? I'm aware she's very young, we see her consultant next month so will be voicing my concerns then. I'd just like any advice really, I don't want to be fobbed off for over reacting I just know from my 3 previous children she's doing things differently. ( not that I'd change it for the world ). Thank you x
