i feel so stupid!
November 18, 2012 at 2:12 AM
I just realized that my son with spd wipes his face on his shirt instead of a napkin because its so much softer! I cannot believe it has taken me this long. 2 years of battling him to use his napkin and stained sleeves then boom duh!
So now I'm going to make him some cloth napkins. I just need some sturdy, soft fabric for them. Hmmm

    I just realized my dd acts like a dinosaur when she's over stimulated so I feel you. It was like, duh, why didn't I see that before! And you are not stupid! You just didn't make the connection until now

    Check your dollar store for baby wash clothes, got some when Allie was a baby and I use those still on her face. They held up better than the gerber ones!

    I have a whole basket of baby washcloths still. I don't think they will be big enough for the job but they will work for now :)

    Does he like the feel of terry cloth? Maybe an old towel can be cut up...Allie hates terry cloth but its an option if he's okay with it.

    some of my son's bibs are made of fleece. He doesn't like the feel of napkins that much, so i made some bibs out of fleece like he has at school and he loves them

    Guess what I JUST NOW had a "DUH" moment! After reading your post I am thinking that Lina might be showing a symptom of something new and that maybe I should have requested an appt with the behavioral/developmental dr sooner than I have!   See We All Have Them!       **face palm & lol**

    Sew a couple together?
    There's almost always a reason behind the strange things they do. The trick is finding it! Don't worry. It's taken us a long time to pick up on ours too.

    That's an idea!! My son hates tissues, after years of battling him I noticed something he loves recieving blankets (using them as tissues "wipers" as he calls them). Which I use them to wipe the baby when he spits up and such, so hey I just bought extra. :o)

    I was going to suggest receiving blankets as well.  You can usually find those things CHEAP at resale shops or goodwill.
