Mild Left hemiplegic cp and potty training
My son, aged 3yr 8 months has a mild left hemi. His hand is virtually unaffected and his foot is very mild - he has piedro boots and various other splints depending what mood his physio seems to be in - another story!! He walks ok with a limp and generally gets around well.
But, he is totally incontinent. He wants to wear pants but anytime we put them on , he has no idea how to control himself and he gets upset. We don't react at all and yesterday he said that he only knows he wants to wee wee when he actually feels it on his leg. He is, i'm told, a bright child and i don't know what to do . His ot and paed (neither great) just keep telling me to leave it til he's ready. His physio said she feels it could be related to the cp but can't elaborate!! Any experience, advice or knowledge of this ? By the way i've bought every type of potty going recently !
