    He said it might have changed since he had it done but this might help

    Its like having cling film wrapped round the arm. BIL has CF so if there's anything you need to know just ask me.

    I know this might sound strange but MIL said if you lick LO's tummy and it tastes salty then that could be an indication to CF. Weird!!

    Hope that helps a bit xx
