Trouble Sleeping?

Cookie was having trouble sleeping, I wasn't sure what to do. She would only sleep on the floor of her closet. She refused to sleep in her bed. She has a history of having difficulty sleeping. Here are some things that have helped:

* Nightlights that are handheld. Cookie has a twilight turtle and a light up owl
* Blankets with textures
* We have not used a weighted blanket, but they are popular with many kids who have SPD
* Brushing before bed
* Applying lotions- we like to use lavender
* Sleeping in a hammock- this is how we got her to sleep in a "bed" and actually SLEEP!
