Quoting megxxx:" @Bizzybee "I was a wreck until I bought her some toys" haha"
Your point? We waited until it was developmentally appropriate to introduce toys, and things got better when she could occupy herself. Are you SURE you've dealt with a high needs child? Most high needs parents will tell you, me included, that once they can play and occupy more of their own time, it gets so much easier.
Besides, you talk about US respecting the OP... she wants this thread to die. You should respect that and just leave it alone instead of trying to start something with me. I don't care if your daughter has a high needs child or if you do or what. You did NOT read what was originally said, thus you do not understand why anyone said what they did at first.
Had she worded her original post anywhere near the same as she has it now, she would have never gotten any rude or harsh replies from anyone. You did not see it, so you do NOT understand.
Oh, and since I don't feel like replying twice... No, a child wired to interact all the time does not make me immediately jump to ADD or ADHD. It makes me wonder why my child is so active, and it made me go to the pediatrician to ask, but it did not make me wonder about any form of special needs. I wore my child constantly to give her the closeness she wanted, and at 3 months we introduced a few new toys to help her focus on other things. It worked. (And yes, toys and board books CAN help a high needs child because they do learn to focus and interact with things other than you or daddy)
I admit I could have worded my reply better, but the original post OP had up actually infuriated ME and made my heart hurt for her child for a minute. So you can't say anything about anything anyone else said until you see that, and that won't happen.. OH and others posted the same thing I did, seconds after I did. Why are you trying to single me out and make me feel bad? (You're not)
