Comfy clothes / vertigo
My daughter Callie (11 years old, type 2) has recently been complaining about her clothes being uncomfortable when she’s trying to get to sleep. She sleeps mainly on her side and is able to roll over independently, so she doesn’t have a night nurse to help with turning her or anything. She normally sleeps in a loose t-shirt and leggings. First she had been complaining about her leggings being tight so I got her some softer, loose pajama pants. Some of them she’s ok with, but the ones with pockets annoy her. She says that it feels uncomfortable when her shirts get bunched up underneath her, but she also doesn’t like wearing tight clothes. I should also mention that she has autism so I’m sure some of this is a sensory processing thing. Anyway, just curious as to what others find comfortable for sleeping! Last night we tried a dri-fit type shirt with flat seams. Does anyone have suggestions of where to get sensory friendly clothes like that? Target seems to be trying; that’s where we got the dri-fit shirt.
Another question I had is whether vertigo is common with SMA. Callie has been feeling dizzy, especially when first sitting up or being lifted. I will probably get her in with her PCP soon. Just wondered if anyone else has experience with this!
Thanks in advance for any input!
