Has the child had their lead levels checked? Sometimes what seems to be a behaviour problem is lead poisoning.
: HI, MY NAME IS TERESA, I'M NEW HERE SO BARE WITH ME. IS THERE ANYONE OUT THERE WITH A CHILD UNDER 2 THAT HAS ADHD? MY GRAND-DAUGHTER IS 18 MOS. AND VERY HYPER. SHE HAS NEVER SLEPT THRU THE NIGHT AND ONLY WEIGHS 21LBS. THE DOCTORS DON'T SEEM TOO WORRIED ABOUT HER WEIGHT BECAUSE SHE IS SO ACTIVE. SHE IS THIRSTY CONSTANTLY AND EATS LIKE A HORSE. IS THERE ANY THING OUT THERE THAT WILL HELP HER SLOW DOWN UNTIL SHE IS OLD ENOUGH TO BE TREATED BY HER DOCTORS? THANKS FOR ANY HELP THAT YOU CAN GIVE ME. NANNY
