My baby (2.5 y) was recognized as SPD. Now I know the source for his sleeping problems.
Please give me some tips how to help him sleep!!!
I haven't had a full night sleep since we was born!!
Ah, so many of us have been through the same thing! The exhaustion because our kids don't sleep. I remember it well, and many are still going through it too.
Here are some articles I have written about this very issue. I hope these help...SPD And Problems SleepingHelping Baby Sleep
(sorry some of these links are dead on this page... I will fix them as soon as possible, but the general information and product suggestions are still good).The SPD Companion... Using SI Theory To Solve Problems At HomeWeighted BlanketsNature Sound Machines
I hope these articles help.
Besides these, make sure your son is receiving Occupational Therapy to help regulate his nervous system and treat the underlying SPD. THIS is what will help in the long run. And, make sure they are specifically addressing the concerns you have.
Anyone else have any other suggestions?? Feel free to share some advice with Ezer! Thanks in advance for any input.
Take good care.
