Alison, 36, is married to Tim and is mother to Oliver (4) and baby Charlotte (3 months).
Tim is in sales and spends a lot of time on the road leaving Alison to manage the kids, so she always has her hands full trying to manage daily chores.
Baby Charlotte has become fussy at feed times. Another mum has mentioned that this may be due to baby being sensitive to something in mum’s diet and Alison is keen to investigate this.
Son Oliver has had breathing problems from time to time which has been a real worry for everyone. A few weeks ago, Oliver was diagnosed with asthma. His GP has prescribed medication for him but has also asked Alison to try to keep a record of how often and how intense the asthma episodes are as well as what factors are potentially triggering each episode.
This is the first time a child has been diagnosed with a chronic condition and Alison and Tim are keen to learn more about asthma and hope to ask the doctor more questions. Alison has communicated with their son’s school regarding the diagnosis. Alison and Tim are worried that their son may have an attack at school or when they go on vacation and want to avoid any triggers.
