Tactile Aversion......NOT

After we brought Isaac home he seemed to have a tactile aversion to certain clothing, bathing, and being touched bare skinned(our hands touching his body while dressing or changing diapers, etc.).  It was really hard at first.  Sarah did this too, but only to certain textures and not human touch.  It is heart breaking to try to change a diaper and not touch bare skin or your baby screams like you are hurting them.   Thankfully we have great therapist who walked us through.  With both kids we did brushing and worked with them to build their tolerance to textures that bothered them. I am happy that we have overcome our tactile aversions.
