Believe it or not part of Jude’s developmental plan was to be more comfortable wearing less clothing (and not to have an epic meltdown at times when she had to be barefoot). When I picked Jude up it was a hot summer day of about 85 degrees and she was wearing:
A zip up hooded sweatshirt
Underwear over the diaper
And I was given a light jacket…
In addition to the practical reasons of not wanting her to overheat there has been obvious security and sensory issues surrounding her desire to dress in multiple layers (and have shoes on at all times even in bed).
It has been a long and difficult road to get here but this is now a daily sight as I cook dinner (and bonus she has learned to dress and undress herself)
