I wonder if possibly its a sense of sleep security?
Have you considered looking at a weighted blanket as it may give a reassurance?
Possibly worth talking it through with an occupational therapist or trying to borrow one and spend money as it might not work.
An idea though?
Looking for sensory toys at affordable prices then look no further

I will speak to them about the weighted blanket, although i have been led to believe that they are not designed to use over night as the has been a case where a child actually died from the weight of the blanket on his chest and it basically suffocated him. Worth a try for the initial falling to sleep though or for a few hours before bed, she does have a very strong startle reflex, similar to that of a newborn baby so maybe this might help reduce that as well.

Thanks again xx
