Biting baby. Hi my name is Katrina and my premature son has been diagnoised with cerebal palsy. He was born at 30 weeks and is now 13 months old. We are doing regular physio etc and he is gettting there but still unable to sit unaided, crawl etc. My main problem is he is so frustrated at not being able to do what his brain says he should and this has lead to tantrums and biting! An boy can he bite hard! he also bites himself when he gets worked up. I am at my wits end as to how to stop him biting me as it really hurts and is hard to settle him down when worked up or to sleep when he is biting! The little monkey often thinks it is funny to bite me too! Any ideas as to how to stop him?

My daughter was born 9 weeks premmie and she had many challenges. She needed extra care and attention as it was looking like she would be wheel chair bound at age 2. She was not able to walk un-assisted, she needed support to sit up, druelled constantly, developmentally delayed, frquent body tremors, seizure like episodes, kind of in a daze all the time, clenched left hand etc tec. She was splinted for a leg brace which she disliked. Her life was restricted & so was mine ...and it looked this way for the rest of her life ... & mine. I felt hopeless.

We were attending all sorts of treatments and therapies which cost a lot. A friend told me about some special wellness supplements from a particular company, she started taking them in her yogurt, after one week she was up walking un-assisted, it made an immense difference to her brain function, memory, balance, mood & cognition in a short space of time. I was elated!

It’s now 14 years later and my daughter still enjoys these special products. She stopped wering the leg brace in primary school. She wrote her own resume a few weeks ago, got 2 x job interviews in one week and started her first casual job after school 2 weeks ago in a fast-paced food takeaway in our local shopping mall. She is now saving to go to Europe and buy her own home when she finishes college. She will begin her driving lessons in about 6 weeks. Her self-esteem is through the roof! I am so grateful to the person that told me about this incredible technology. She now has a life now ….. and so do I.
