Sorry it took me so long to respond. It sounds like she may have some sensory issues. There are a few things that can be done. First having her evaluated by an OT, until then there is theratubing that goes onm the back of pencils for cheewing and these vibrating chew toys for oral stimulation. Both work very well. As for the socks we've all been there and again there is a few things u can try seamless socks or turning them inside out. I hope that helped and feel free to come ask anything else you may wonder about :)
