My eight-year-old son just got fitted with neck gear (phase one of a several phase orthodontic plan for him). He has been working up for the last week to get use to it and starting a few days ago, he is wearing it overnight. (Notice that I didn't say sleeping with it because none of us are getting a lot of sleep.)
Obviously, he is now limited to how he can lie with it on and it is hard for him to get comfortable. We keep telling him that it will get easier to sleep with it on, but he is not really believing us at this point. To be honest, I am not sure how he's even sleeping at all -- he is a 'back sleeper', at least most of the time.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what we can do to make it easier for him to sleep with it on?
Looking for suggestions... thanks in advance!
