Baby Visit 5
Daniel’s day starts with a disappointing discovery that he has wet the bed again.
Children who have difficulty with transitions for example, getting up and dressed, the mornings can be difficult. Daniel is aware of this and his cape, his transitional object helps him through and helps to comfort him.
This is a self-calming strategy and many children have a special toy or blanket. Daniel is sensitive to temperature and discomfort. He is ‘highly sensitive’ refers not only to emotional reactions but also sensory reactions.
