Quoting ~Hayden's~Mommy~:" hi ladies. i have a quick question. My daughter starts her OT on monday but I'm just exhausted and i ... [snip!] ... out again around 930. I'm just lost right now. Its been the longest week with 3 visits back to the ER. Any advice? "
Hopefully once things calm down the meltdowns will slow down. I dont know that there is much you can do really. If you dont know what it is then you cant try to steer clear and keep them from starting and you cant help stop them. A lot of the time Faith says she doesnt want to be touched but it helps her if i hold her tight. lots of pressure, try to massage or rub her. Give her some extra input while shes freaking out. but i can only do that when she's stopped just screaming and is crying/screaming mixed. Its hard to explain, i've just learned to recognize that instant where I can jump in. I would get ahold of a developmental pediatrician to see if they have ideas.
