It has been one month since our last check up. I left the Children’s Hospital with a skip in my step. Olive’s braced hours are reduced to 12 hours, or her night time sleep!
It took nearly two weeks for Olive to adjust to brace free daytime sleeps. She was not able to self soothe if she woke up after a short sleep, took a bit longer to get to sleep and often needed to be put back down at the bottom of the cot.
There is a still some dysplasia in one hip but the other is exactly where it should be for her age! Our next appointment is not for another two months. Fingers crossed the remaining dysplasia is corrected and we get the all clear!
The photos below are from one morning not long after the brace free days commenced.
