    Constipation

    Constipation means they find gong to the toilet difficult or painful, and when they do go, they only manage to pass a few small, hard stools. Read more →

    My daughter is also 6 and has signs of puberty. Pubic hair, odour, moods and growth. Took her to the doctors and they have referred her to hospital. I would get a 2nd opinion from the doctors if I were you.

    I have just returned from seeing physio about my 5 year old's daughter's feet. She gave me some exercises. She said there is nothing I can do to make her stop walking on toes except reminding her. It is a habit and will change according to her moods and anxiety. She will only stop when she chooses to. What I need to do is do exercises to loosen her mussels and tendons. That is problem that needs to be dealt with. I do not want her to have walking/health problems when she is older. The physio did say in extreme cases there is an operation but again that is to do with the tight tendons, not to stop her from walking on her toes.

    My 5 yr old daughter has this same problem,habitual toe walking and has just come out of casts , she had them on for 6 weeks in total, with them being changed every two weeks. The idea is to stretch the tendons. Am very pleased to say she got them off on wednesday and she is walking normal, it is just a habit, but a habit that needs worked with, hence the stretch casts on both feet, I don't feel that physio was enough to cure this issue with my daughter, neither was just reminding her. Glad this worked because the next step was surgery, which I didn't want.

    My daughter has just turned 2. She is completely the opposite to her older sister. she was late, crawling and walking. She doesnt really talk properly she just babbles. she gets very frustrated when trying to communicate with people. she is very shy in front of strangers and she hates loud noises, such as a hoover, hair dryer, lawn mower. she freaks out when she hears these kind of noises. Her moods change so rapidly, one mionute shes happy and laughing and the next shes either crying over nothin or goes into complete whinging mode that can go on for hours. My mum mentioned autism to me a while ago but i just thought that couldnt be possible. I am now thinking alot about it and im unsure whether this could be the case?
