My 4yr old dd (number 2 out of 4) is very meticulous about, well everything! She hates dirty/sticky hands or face, the seems in her tights/socks have to be just so, she can't wear jumpers/long sleeves if there slightly to long/short, has to have her hair in the same way EVERY day, counts her sweets, peas ect... And will only wear "dolly shoes" unless I bribe her with splashing in puddles (which she surprisingly enjoys) although she hates being wet and muddy so I have to carry spare clothes! Is this just a 4 year old faze (note my 8yr old and 3yr old are not nor never were this way) or is this early signs of OCD? confused

It could be a lot of things of which OCD is only one.

If she has other issues like rigid behaviour/thinking or difficulties with socialising ASD is a possibility.

A sensory processing issue is also a possibility especially as so many of her issues seem to be around being comfortable.

I am not trying to diagnose just suggest some other areas it might be worth reading researching around to see if anything clicks.
