Parenting; Rickets

To other mothers…..


So, I have written here about how my son got rickets diagnosis and I was devastated to the core. Now, I think it’s becoming serious. Two of my friends have had their sons diagnosed with rickets, one of them, same day they got the diagnosis, at the chemist waiting for their vitamin D3 jab, there were two more guys with the same prescriptions.
