Sorry to hear your are having some troubles with that.

The best advice I suppose would mainly be, be the bad mommy for a moment and make her sit in the grass and show her that there is nothing wrong with it. Try no to enable her behavior when she starts crying. Try talking to her, or showing her, you sitting in the grass or whatever the situation is, and that it doesn't hurt mommy it won't hurt you.

Best of luck. Wish I could be of more help, sadly my boy is very tough always being a little daredevil....so not much experience with a sensitive one.

hi and welcome!!!
my LO is sensitive, but not as much as your little one. she still cries very easily. she used to be so afraid of bugs, and DH would gently show her every bug he found. now she picks them up herself. maybe if you calmly show her how it is nothing to be afraid of.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

No Breana is not afraid of anything. She will pick up stink bugs dead or alive.

Welcome! I'm sorry, I have no advice for you, neither of my kids have really had those issues I guess.

Welcome! My eldest was/is like that. Its getting better as she's getting older. We try as much as possible to just ignore it. I know that sounds mean but crying over water on clothing was just a bit too much. We deal with it when its something to cry over and just ignore when its not.

Thanks to Claire1979 for the amazing siggy.

Abbey is to some degree, I mean she doesn't like being dirty and sticky she tends to freak out but for the most part she seems ok.
