Since she is under 6 months old, the treatment option that the doctor chose to help her hip get back to where it needs to be and grow correctly, was the pavlik harness. The harness can come off for diaper changes and bath time, but other than that, she wears it all the time.
The wonderful things are that 1- her hip does not hurt her, 2- the harness does not hurt or bother her, 3- this was caught early enough that hopefully this treatment option will fix her little hip.
Please being praying for proper development of her hip and selfishly, I am praying for her hip to "heal" quickly. As a mom, that appointment day was filled with lots of tears from me, but I know that she is so little that she will not remember this. We go back to the doctor in about 2 weeks, so hopefully we will have good news of improvement at that appointment.
