Thanks Tanya - I knew there was something out there I had heard about but couldn't remember what it was called. I will ask about it next Dr. visit. Actually I realized after my post that I had thrown out the egg crate we had on his bed because it had gotten yucky and replaced it with a different one that was. The new one was not as thick as the other one, so I found one like he had before and he went to sleep much easier last night and again tonight. I should have known not to change- LOL. I think the alternating air pressure mattress will be great also.
hi there..im sitting here with my dmd son who is 10. so im actually asking him what helped him and we both concluded the new sheets i bought. he hated the egg crate mattress so we took that off. didn't really like anything we put on his bed. what helped is i got him so new sheets...the really high thread count kind and some super soft comforters. im working on getting the air mattresses like tanya's boys' have but in the meantime that helped him out.
