It's an overwhelming - but fun - commitment but we always have our lovey as the third wheel in case Finn gets frustrated and a little snuggling needs to happen! His Baby Jack Learning Lovey serves as an all time therapy tool as he plays with the ribbon tags for added stimulation and comfort.
We are Baby Jack LOYALS and have had loveys from the very beginning. We encourage all our friends and followers to grab one as a child's gift since it is a toy / security blanket and KIND brand wrapped in one! We love sharing the story of our loveys and how they impact Finn's life and feel great that they can be brought along for a therapy tool during his appointments.
Speech is tough because Finn has horrible oral aversion. He had a giant panic attack when the therapist put a strawberry on his plate the meeting after our evaluation and it brought back a lot of PTSD for me (and him) remembering times of panic in the hospital after surgeries. More cry sessions and some anxiety = lots of mommy snuggles with our lovey.
OT is totally his friend and he always thinks it’s a game. Don’t get me wrong, he absolutely loves going to all of these therapies! And if we can’t go for whatever reason, he always misses his therapist and experience! But it’s definitely a struggle at times and it’s a lot of work. Whatever we practice in the sessions we have to implement at home. Learning all things takes time, patience and persistence!
