Yup, I do. And it deals with Supplements. You see a board I belong too is very NON-supplement and I want to set my story straight.
First of all, I give Mayson a supplement called MSB+. It made just for people with Down Syndrome. They have done years of research and have found that people DS break things down differently than you or I. Some things absorb faster or slower, etc....
Now the controversy is that some think that we "buy into" supplements because we are trying to change our child with DS. Some supplements have claimed to have made the child "smarter" or changed their DS features.
Well, that is not why we choose a supplement. We choose it because it is made specifically for my childs body set up. She has taken it since she was 10 months old and is the healthiest of all three of my children. She has never had an ear infection, or had to take antibiotics, etc. She does great with therapies and is over all a wonderful child.
I am not saying that regular vitamins are bad. I just choose this one over them, is all. Its my choice and my child.
Ok, with that being said, I feel better now. Thanks for listening!
