Hello, my daughter has IP along with seizures. I have been reading a lot of scary things regarding IP and seizures. I read if the child has seizures with the IP thats a sign of mental retardation and mental delay. My daughter is 6 weeks and I'm worried about her development, she's too young to tell what her mental capacity will be but I was hopefully someone could give me some information? I cant help but worry, thank you.
my daughter has intractable sezuires, which means medication won't help, so if your baby is not having sezuires, then you are doing great. if you want to get your baby checked out, you could see a neurologist, genetics, and eye docs.
