No jacket

by mor


my son is 3 and a half years old diagnosed with SPD. He refuses potting on more than one layer (that includes coat or jacket) even in the coldest days. I don’t know what to do, and he just caught a cold. I will really appreciate any advice. Thanks!

Daughter 7 also hates jackets
by: Anonymous

My daughter is 7 and also hates jackets. This has been going on for years now, but we live in CA so it's usually mild out. I got her a heavy lined cape from lands end that she loves. It solves the uncomfortable tightness in the arms problem and she looks like little red ridding hood. Maybe you can find a batman cape? I think her main issue is with the double layering of clothes and the arms being too tight. I try to make sure all jackets have loose arms and are slick inside the arm so the shirt doesn't bunch up. Other than moving to a warmer climate there is not much else to do...
