I'm looking for perent with babies/children with Congenital Hypothyroidism to share information and provide support for eash other.
My baby boy was premature and was only diagnozed upon release from NICU andonly starte dhis meds a day before being one month old. I worry that it was not late enough to affect his mental development in any way, as I read that the early diagnozes is very important for that. So far he looks absolutely normal. He took 12.5 mg of Syntroid daily for about 6 month and then his dosage was increased to 25 mg.
If you have a baby with this issue, how often does he/she needs to see the doctor to check her hormon levels?
Also does he/she experience any sleep issues? My son, 10 months old now, sleeps purely so far, wake 4-5 time during the night. I'm not sure, is it because of his issue and is it my fault for not sleep training him and breastfeeding him to sleep. (I have another twin baby and am just terrified to wake her up as well, if I'll let him cry a bit longet when he wakes up at night, so I pick him up quite fest). The other twin, the girl, sleeps very well and only wakes up once during the night.
I'll be very happy to hear from other parents who's babies/children have the same issues. Especially, if your child is older now and how these things develop and change with the age.
