My developmentally delayed son wants to dress like his baby sister

[deleted account] ( no moms have responded yet )

Billy is eight, still in diapers, and because he's allergic to disposables I use cotton gauze pre fold diapers. He is on the small side of the eight-year-old growth chart, and is at the maturity level of a four-year-old. A year ago we had our daughter, and like Billy's older sister, she is normal. But Billy has become fascinated with her clothes and is begging to be dressed like her. My husband is in the Navy, and will be gone over the next eight months, so I'm facing this new challenge on my own. We face time and he says he will back whatever decision I make. Billy's physical therapist doesn't see a problem with it and we don't see the doctor for another month. Any suggestions?
