: Our daughter is 7 months old and we were told that she has CP when she was 5 months old. She is now
: still having test done along with physical and occupational therapy. She also began taking a drug called
: Klonipan to help with her stiffness and as a seizure preventative. She is a loving baby, but she wants to
: be held all the time, and she won't let anyone hold her except my wife and I. If we try and put her in a
: swing or in a rocker, all she does is cry until we pick her up. Once we do this, she is fine again. We are
: not sure if this is part of her CP or if she's just spoiled. If any other parents are having or have had this
: problem please respond with some advise.
Our son is 15 months, one of twins, who has Athetoid Quadriplegic cp. He was forever crying and still will omnly be held by the family. We have recentley been giving him Lactulose for constipation and he seems a bit more settled. I think cp babies cry for a reason, he has reflux too. I know how hard it is for you, you seem to be holding your baby 24 hours a day!
