Hi to all you great people on this page I'm looking for advice and support as iv said on here before about my Little boy James who is 5 losing the sight on a permanent basis In his left eye. He was born with a cleft of the soft palate. Jamea lost the sight in his left eye because he has sticklers syndrome, which unfortunately went undiagnosed. I would love to know if there is anyone on this page or associated with this page who have stickler syndrome. I would love to be in contact with people who are in a similar situation to our self's. I'm find the whole loss of sight and diagnosis of stickler in may very hard to deal with. Thank you so much in advance to anyone who reply so to this post. It's much appreciated. ... See MoreSee Less
So my little boy is 6 months now born with bclp but after 3 months on infantrini & carobel he's finally big & strong enough to have his 1st op in temple St next Tuesday. I'm so nervous & stressed over it but on top of everything else I found out today that temple St cannot guarantee us a bed in the parents accommodation until we arrive they cannot confirm anything. Has anyone else had this experience? I don't know whether I should take my chances r book into a nearby b&b just in case. On the other hand we only live in Drogheda so if we can't get a room in the hospital would they let me stay on the ward over night after the op with my baby & I can send my partner home? I dunno what to do. Any advice appreciated. Thanks 😊 ... See MoreSee Less
Looking for advice if anyone can help please. My baby boy was born nearly 4 months ago with bilateral cleft lip & palette. He's never had trouble swallowing & he's a very hungry baby but he's been on several different formulas & isn't great at gaining his weight. He feeds through the haberman bottles. He pukes a good bit almost immediately after each feed. He was prescribed Zantac to try keep the formula down 2 weeks ago but it's not working. I was in temple street last Friday & his 1st op he was due to have next week has to be postponed as he is only 9lb13oz (born 6lb2oz)! Had to go to temple street again yesterday to see a dietician who recommended infatrini formula as did the cleft nurse a few weeks back but I'm still waiting on the hospital to post me out a prescription. It's so frustrating & heartbreaking watching my son be able to take the bottles no problem but puking them up straight away no matter what formula he is on & I don't think the zantec is doing much good. I was told it would be hard to add certain anti reflux medication to his bottles cos they thicken all formulas & they aren't suitable for the haberman feeder. I don't want him falling any further behind in his weight gain. Has anyone any similar experiences or able to provide any help or advice? Thanks :) ... See MoreSee Less
