Born Anxious is a homegrown clothing label with two objectives, to make the clothes as comfortable as possible, whilst also remaining planet friendly, and to hold important information that will aim to help not only the child, but also the caregiver as well when required. As an autism mum myself, I have thought about what could help me and other caregivers whilst trying to be as generic as possible within the designs, alongside giving those the opportunity to personalise their products as well.


When sickness strikes!

When sickness strikes!

So you have had a week in the sun , you have your to do list you make excellent progress on day one, everyone back in the system then day two a sick bug! This can not be happening! Not only do I hate sick and poo a resistant child who’s throwing up isn’t a pretty sight! Totally helpless every towel we own used , it’s both ends!!!! every plan made every meeting all rearranged and I’m forced to sit with a puking child  ,and I was really annoyed about it, but do you know what I happily will because it’s the only time in his life he wants a cuddle ,so I peg my nose and inhale him a while , my little one who appears to not need any physical interaction at the best of times , when he’s poorly I get confirmation he does actually need me , he needs a hug too and for today I’m happy to become his human lounge chair  , these times are so precious he’s just started school I really miss him, and so I’m a little thankful for this time . 

So many mums mask Illness, and send them to school anyway for selfish reasons or work I feel this is so wrong for a few different reasons , you should always be able to drop everything for your own kids if you do not work  , your workplace is Slightly different I get that ,but the knock on effect of sending your child to school within that 48 hr period could mean another child getting poorly , like mine! My child will be at home with his germs until he is clear , which on one hand if I’m honest my initial reaction wasn’t the best its a pain as I have lots to do this week, but on the other hand I think nature did me a favour today and I really needed that hug from him 💙
