Chew Shirts

If you had seen us out and about a year or so ago, you may have noticed Early Bird’s shirt neck or long sleeves with holes in them and likely damp. Or you may have seen those parts of his shirt twisted up and in his mouth. Losing and gaining new teeth was particularly hard on my sensory defensive kiddo. I tried baby chew toys on plastic necklaces (didn’t know about Chewlery back then ) and washcloths, but nothing met the need like the always accessible and perfect sensory feel of his shirts. So he wore the same six shirts for months and eventually chewed them to shreds. I have no idea what people seeing us in public thought. But at some point I stopped caring. My kid for whatever unknown (at the time) needed this and it helped him. All it cost me was a few cheap shirts. Worth it.
