My 4 year old son (only child) has been having problems with every item of clothing I place on him. He has crying fits and tantrums when I try to dress him. This has been going on for about six months now. It began with the waistband on his pants, then the sleeves on his shirts, then his shoes (he claims they have bones in them) and now he's included his socks,jacket, gloves, and hat. I ask him what it is that bothers him, but he can't explain it. He uses only one pair of socks over and over, although he has several pairs that are exactly the same. He knows when I have changed them. He won't wash his hands because he doesn't want his sleeves to get wet, even though we pull his sleeves all the way up. I have to remove his shirt completely. I can't put lotion on him because he can't stand the feeling. Today, I wiped his bottom with a wipey instead of toilet paper and he cried for 30 minutes because he still felt wet (I had wiped him dry for five minutes with a towel) I dread morning time when I have to dress him because it is a constant battle trying to find he perfect thing for him to wear. We go through several shirts, pants,and socks before his is somewhat satisfied...actually, by this time I have lost my composure and I threaten to walk out the door without him. My mother, sisters, and niece have tried to dress him and he gives them the same dramatic routine. I am at my wits end!! What can I do to help him?
