As stated my 5 year old basically keeps herself awake by pulling, twisting and playing in her hair all night long. I'm thinking of getting her a sleeping cap, if those still exist, because it is something that is pretty unconscious. I ask her to leave her hair alone and several times she won't even realize she's playing in it.
She is literally pulling her hair out and I really think it is also keeping her from sleeping. She has always been a sleep fighter in some way or another.
So does anyone know of any other option or where to find a sleeping cap(do they have another name?)
Thanks in advance.
Maybe any soft beanie style cap would do? I agree it is worth a try, just to see if you can break the unconscious habit. Is anxiety a major issue in your child's waking hours?
