Why is she doing this!? Belle De Jour Due October 8 (boy); 2 kids; Kentucky 19015 posts

My 2 year old has been zoning out A LOT. She has always done it to a point but the last two weeks she has been doing it more often and for longer periods of time.
We think she has sensory issues and that's going to be addressed to her new doctor in the next week.
She get's her special blanket and her sippy (full or not) and just wraps herself in the blanket and sucks on the sippy. Most of the time she will do it on our laps while watching tv. Others she will lay on the floor by herself. And she will do this for long periods of time. Like anywhere from 20mins to 2 hours.
I just don't feel like that's normal for a 2 year old.
Does anyone elses child do that to that extent? Have you talked to their doctors about it before?

Bri does that, it's usually when she's worn out.

Multiple times a day and for long periods of time?

Maybe she's really tired going through a growth spurt? I dunno I don't think that's normal but my toddler is hyperactive so her siting for 20 minutes in the same spot would make me worry LOL

No, but only because with her it's from being tired, and I notice the cues sooner now so I just lay her down for bed when she's like that, even if it means she takes another nap, sometimes 2 extra naps.
But she will flop down on like, a box. Or the couch. With her blankie and pacifier and just hang out. She's really chill lol

BUT, for the record, I'm not saying that just because it's normal for my kid, that it's normal for yours. Just wanted to offer you my experience. DS never did it, he's always just been spastic. But Bri does and it doesn't seem out of the ordinary at all for her.

my son used to do that a lot and they found out he was having seizures. you might want to discuss this with your pediatrician. hope that helps and good luck!

Yeah, Idk. She's been doing it longer and longer. The other day I was watching a movie with the girls and they were both cuddled up with me and she got up and went into the living room and just laid down on the floor all by herself.
I guess she could have just wanted some time to herself but for a whole half hour? (eventually I went in there and scooped her up and brought her back into my room).
There have been times that she came home from daycare and just laid in her bed until dinner. Eyes open but just staring off into space and not moving other than the rubbing thing she does with the blanket.
Idk, I think it's just that I don't expect this behavior out of a 2 year old.

I need to call them and ask, I lost the little card with the date on it. :oops: Usually they call 2 days before but I just need to know so I can be off work.

Really good. It's super easy to host so since I like to keep busy I have been bussing all the servers tables for them when I have the chance and that makes them happy lol.
Everyone seems pretty cool so far and they seem to like me. Especially the managers.
