She has been alert like this scince birth!
I think the Britelight will work well for you, and the Omega 3 Mood has really made a difference for me.
Ha, well, Ds was very alert since birth as well, to the point where he screamed every night for hours because it was like he was getting to much stimulation than his brain was ready for. He is still "alert" in that he is quite anxious and hyper aware of his surroundings. He was also developmentally ahead, and tested 2 and half years ahead cognitively when we had all his apraxia testing. However, he didn't speak, and got a diagnosis of apraxia. Then we gave him fish oil and he started talking, at an amazingly fast rate to the point that he was completely caught up within six months. Anyway, the alert thing wont sell me, I really want a perfectly average baby this time so it will lay in the sling and be able to fall asleep at night
But, the possibility of preventing the whole speech delay, or apraxia issue in the baby would be a bonus. How much fish oil did you take in pregnancy? I'm taking 6000 mg now.
And the brightlight should be great this fall. I live in MN so we have a long winter here.
