I can not find ANYTHING that my 6 year old will wear
My daughter has recently been diagnosed with tactile defensiveness. She is 6 years old and in first grade. She began having issues, now that I look back on everything, since she was able to get herself dressed. When she was tiny, she would change her clothes 25 times a day....literally!!! Or, she would run around in her birthday suit. Well, when you are 2 thats cute. When you are 6, of course...not so appropriate.
Then it started.....time to begin pre-k...all of a sudden she hated shirts, specific shirts....then she would only wear dresses, then only shorts....Time has passed, this child, bless her heart, will only wear one pair of underwear, which by the way ripped today...(crisis) and 2 tank tops...she will also wear one pair of pj pants. They are a size 10...she is a size 7 and 48 pounds...can you imagine how huge they are on her. Bless her.
Her little toes hate shoes, she will only wear a size 2 while her feet measure a size 13 but the size 2 dont "hurt her". We have to tie them so tight though, they leave marks. We have tried everything in terms of clothes: under armour, cotton, ramie, polyester...consignment store clothes...tight/compression clothes, I NEED HELP. I do not know what else to try.... She looks like a little orphan. I am ok with excepting the fact that she is not going to be a fashion diva. However, I want her to be comfortable, and at some kind of peace.
I cry everyday because of what she goes through. Any suggestions or helpful comments would so be appreciated. I do thank God its only the clothing that she has issues with....not any food problems, she plays with anything sticky or eewy gooey...she loves....its just the clothes....
