Oliver was born on 20th October 2016. He has Prader Willi syndrome
For those that don’t know much about Prader Willi syndrome in short he will be slow to hit his milestones due to low muscle tone when he was born. He has struggled to feed from day one but that has improved and he will eventually catch up with other children.
Between the ages of two and four children with prader willi stop feeling full so he won’t know when he is full. If this isn’t managed properly he will become obese and will have the additional problems that come with that. With a good diet and educating him we should be able to help control this.
There is the potential for leaning difficulties but when we get to that bridge we will cross it. For now we are looking at learning makaton (simple sign language -mr tumble uses it) to help him as we’ve been told that speech can be delayed so this way he will be able to communicate with us if it is the case
Oliver is continuing to not only surprise us (mum and dad) with how well he is progressing but even health professionals are shocked at how quickly he is moving along
