I havent been on ivillage in a LONG time, since the birth of my son in June 2009 to be honest, lol. I think this is a good time to seek out the support of some other Mom's as my Son has been diagnosed with ADHD. He has been diagnosed early as he is just five. The specialist here in Ottawa said he is a "classic case" and felt confident with his diagnosis. This was back in August. He has been started on Adderall XR and we have seen AMAZING changes in our son. His ability to focus, complete tasks or even just have a normal conversation has been just an amazing transition to watch!
We are having two issues. The first is what I am most concerned with... SLEEP! The poor kids has SO much trouble falling asleep. Its getting to the point that he's still up talking to me at 10pm and then of course I have to drag him out of bed for school at 7am. Does anyone have any suggestions to help with this? Someone mentioned a "white noise" machine, would think help him settle or just stimulate him more?
Ps... Where do I get a new siggy... mine is ANCIENT!!! lol
