Poor weight gains.... again

This weeks weight gain was very poor. It was only 80g. Last weeks was much better, at 210g. So, we're now at 6.88kg. That's still in the bottom 3 percent for babies. *sigh*
It could be worse. It could easily have been a negative gain (that is, a loss).

Isabella has decided that she doesn't sleep

Isabella is... unsettled... for want of a better word.
It's been a year now since Ian was arrested for what the local constabulary allege was signs of physical abuse on Bella.
It's also (approximately) 6 months since Ian has been allowed to move back in, and still, Bella is unsettled.
2230 tonight, I finally convinced her to sleep. Rather, I convinced her to stay on her bed, no playing, and be quiet.
And this has been happening for 12 months now.
I'm at the end of my rope, and I don't know what to do... I can't keep doing this, and the counsellor was as useful as a bull with tits (or a cow without...)
