my grand daughter is 4 1/2 month old and was born 4 weeks early. and unfortunately exposed to heroin and was in NICU for first 5 weeks of life. My son, never married to mother (having no clue mom was using heroin) took custody once he found out. My son and grand daughter live with us. Due to her withdraw issues, and other small complications she was a baby needing to be held alot, even in the NICU. Happy to say she is now off all medications and withdraw and a beautiful happy girl. But now she wont sleep unless held, this is taking a toll on all of us. my son is a stay at home dad during day and he works and goes to school at night. Any tips ideas and /or suggestions greatly appreciated.
