Having a child with SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder)

Getting my baby boy to eat is such a struggle. lately its getting worse. He will only eat a few things and he doesn't finish anything. He really loves to eat all the crap that isnt good for him. I offer him food all day mostly healthy things like cereal, frozen strawberries, bread, and sometimes he will eat lunchable jrs but that is very rare. I know they arent good for him but he is a skinny lil boy. He loves his donuts and pringles and of course popsicles. He will sometimes eat a hot dog and a bun just not together. Most days he takes on or two bites of something and thats it, people say of he will eat when he is hungry, its not that simple, he doesnt feel the hunger that we feel.

Getting him to sleep is another struggle. He sometimes stays up til 3 am luckily he can keep himself in his bed. Hes always been a bad sleeper as a baby he was up every 3 hours.

Everyone always give him the "get rid of the diapers" talk but he has no sensation of even going to the bathroom or having a dirty diaper. He can poop in the tub and not even realize he did it. So telling him to be a big boy isnt going to help him. He will be in diapers until his body is ready to tell him he needs to go.

The purpose of sharing this is to help other see my kid and other kids who you may see struggling are not spoiled or being bad they just cant help it.

There are days when he just cant deal and hates everything. He does not like to play with many children and loves to ride around on his power wheels tractor 99% of the day. The summer is rough for him being outside with all the noise and the bright sun. He takes breaks on his own to come inside and relax with his blankie to get away from everything.

Having a child with SPD is truly a struggle at times but I wouldnt trade him for the world. He is my life!!

Baby Magic Review

I remember seeing Baby Magic for as long as I can remember. I always loved the smell. I was sent a few a few products to sample and it brought me back to the days Hailee was a baby 10 years ago. Baby Magic lotion was one of my first gifts at my baby shower, hard to believe its been 10 years.

 I was sent

 Baby Magic Original Baby Lotion: A rich, non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly into a baby’s skin for softening and nourishing. The formula is formulated for conditioning and protecting – perfect for everyday use!

 Calming Baby Bath – Lavender & Chamomile: This soothing bath wash infuses real lavender and chamomile to help your baby relax. Baby Magic’s Calming Bath is perfect for a bedtime bath for a peaceful night.

 Baby Magic Diaper Rash Cream: Has the maximum level of zinc oxide for the most severe to the tiniest diaper rash, this cream works wonders. Keep your baby comfortable all day long!

 I have never used the Diaper Rash cream before but I have been using it daily on my 3 yr old. As stated in previous posts he has Sensory Processing Disorder and is not potty trained and can not feel that he has even went to the bathroom. This causes diaper rash alot. Being lactose and eating certain foods makes his diaper rash worse as well.

 Along with his SPD comes sleeping disorder, he sometimes takes hours to fall asleep. He is obsessed with bathing so we use alot of the Calming Baby Bath. He has alot of meltdowns and its hard for him to relax so I use this at each bath to help calm him down and he loves playing in the bubbles.

 He also suffers from bad eczema so we go through the lotion, he loves helping me put it in his arms and legs and he smells like a baby when hes done! It leaves his skin smooth and not red and patchy. Its just a nice scent that just bring me back to baby days!

 Baby Magic has wonderful products and the prices are affordable!

SweetLeaf Water Drops Water Enhancer Review

I love water and try to pass on the love of water to my kids. I give them water alot and they are ok with it but every once in a while they need a bit of flavor. We were sent a few flavors of SweetLeaf Water Drops Water Enhancers. We have tried Raspberry Lemonade, Peach Mango, & Strawberry Kiwi. Raspberry is a big hit with the kids, I prefer Strawberry Kiwi.
SweetLeaf Water Drops Water Enhancers is very easy to use just squirt the desired amount depending on how flavorful you like it into you glass, bottle or whatever you drink your water out of.
SweetLeaf® Water Drops™ are natural, convenient, sugar-free and gluten-free water enhancers with zero calories, zero carbs, non-glycemic response and NO artificial sweeteners. My older son has very bad teeth problems and is not supposed to have sugar that means no sugary drinks. SweetLeaf is great for kids becuase there in no sugar so he can enjoy a fruity drink just like everyone else.
