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.


The moon

The moon

Many people have a theory that the Moon can effect Autism behaviour and sleep cycle.  I certainly since Oscar has been born have said he was a moon baby , even before diagnosis his behaviour was always intense if there was a full moon and his sleep and feeding would be affected ,  he had his first jabs as a baby when it was a full moon , what they injected into him literally sat  on top of his his muscle and swelled up ,he screamed for three days almost, we were told to massage it in , from that point I avoided any vaccinations on a full or almost full moon, the atmosphere was more intense, and around teething time[early around 4 months old] I purchased him an amber bracelet which encourages your body’s own natural painkiller , his teething was unlike my other children,  he cut 4 teeth at a time , he started teething at around 4 months old and by the time he was a year old, he had 22 teeth! No which was unfortunate in the biting phase!  

The amber really helped, and he has worn one since, if he has got it on if it comes off while he is playing he looks for it and puts it back on himself, I hope he always wears it , it’s his thing , his brother also has one he sometimes wears and my dad also wears one I always buy new baby’s born we know an amber bracelet it’s my thing now,I swear by them . 

what I have noticed if it’s almost a full moon or a complete full moon is , Oscar is agitated his behaviour is very prickly, he’s intolerant of the world even more than usual , the moon affects the tide and the gravitational pull and we go live near the sea  , I had always put it down to the intensity of the affect of the moon on oscars anxiety and I have started planning around the moon , just because it clearly affects him , and what ironic is he seems obsessed by the moon ,If we are out in the dark he will look for it in the sky and loves his moon lamp light, he has and his space information books and studies the constellations .

i have copies in a few facts about the moon and Autism.
