Winter does not work well with SPD
Getting out of the house in the mornings is already a battle. We are all night owls and early mornings does not work well in our family. Little Miss sleeps to 9 am when left to her own devices. But if we don't leave early in the mornings, we get stuck in traffic, and... (fill in the dots!)
But winter is just so much worse. Little Miss struggles with everything! *SPD does not work well in winter!
- It's cold. She can't get up! Her dad helps her get into a gown and slippers.
- She sits in front of the heater, struggling to put on a next layer of clothing.
- The winter clothes are all uncomfortable. From the vests to the socks and the shoes! We know why it is a fight to get her to put on her shoes, but it makes it soo difficult! It takes ages for her to get all her clothes on that it feels somewhat comfortable. And we have to convince her about each layer of extra clothing.
- Saying it is going to be cold does not help!
We are late each morning!
Sorry, Little Miss! Winter does not work on you!
We try our utmost to be patient and to help you with the clothes. We are not always succeeding and sorry for not always being patient!
It helps to be aware of it!
How do you help your little one with SPD getting dressed with all the layers of clothing?
