    Hi Guys, we had our appointment at the childrens hospital yesterday,and they were great as we had to do a little bit of travelling they organised everything to be done within the space of a few hours. Our bub is in a pavlik harness and will be for 3 months, she can come out of it for 1 hour for baths (so in it 23 hours a day) which is good although I get worried it wont be adjusted right when we put it back on as long as her hips are at a 90 degree angle and open that should be fine. Her right hip socket was underdeveloped and flat instead of curved. We go back in 6 weeks for another x ray and progress check up. She was a little trooper and is coping ok just getting a little frustrated by limited movement.

    Well at least you get bathtime, that's not so bad then. I'm sure I either read or heard somewhere along the line that you can still do tummy time even in the harness. Double check that with your physio though just in case I'm going mental I never bothered because my girl hated tummy time.

    She also really didn't like having the harness put back on after her weekly bath, though that might have because it was a stranger doing it plus the room at the hospital was never very warm you don't have those dramas.

    Nmtb so glad you get bath time but it's so hard (emotionally!) to put it back on *hugs*
    The easiest way for me was to mark where the straps were and just undo her feet/ankles and the chest strap. Good luck and I hope the time flies for you. Try and get her to a chiro or osteopath when she comes out too as she will do lots of growing in 3 months! She might need dome adjusting. *hugs* hope it all works out for you guys

    And yes, as rainbow said you can still do tummy time though my dd hated it in the harness. She will probably learn to roll in it too and even crawl! Xxx

    Thankyou so much for your kind and supportive words. We are very lucky to be able to have bath time and I am very grateful for that. It is amazing how resiliant kids can be when they need to and modify the way they do something that has changed from the way they did it before. Our little one is coping better and better each day and so am I, I have done tummy time with her and she found it a little awkward but I will modify it if necessary so it is more comfy for her, each day is one day closer to success with the treatment for us and all your little ones good vibes and hugs to you all.

    Hi guys, my DH and I were wondering if any of you have experienced what we have today? We have just bathed our DD and when the harness was off she moved her good leg but didnt move the other even in the water she only kicked with her good one the other stayed in the bent position. During the day I noticed she would move her foot on the bad leg but she would actually straighten out the good leg from the knee and move it has anyone else experienced reduced movement of the bad leg? As we were rushed in to orthodics friday afternoon and they weren't prepared for us they never explained if there was anything we should look out for, It may be worth while giving them a call. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Thanks mrs Molly Coddle I am going to do that tomorrow as there seems to be little info on the net apart from an article that calls something similar to this"Pseudoparalysis of the affected limb in a Pavlik harness" which is quite rare and they found 3 children who had this wearing a Pavlik so hopefully this isnt it and it's nothing to worry about.

    It looked like femoral nerve palsy from the harness and they told us to take it off and go see them asap so we had a real rush trip to sydney that day. By the time we gat to syd (2 1/2 hours) she had started to move her leg which was a relief. They told us to wait 24 hrs and put the harness back on and if it happens again take harness off and make another app sooner for our specialist, I have to check her leg every 2 hours for movement, It still seems to have reduced activity with the harness on so I am going to call them today to see about a quicker appointment than our 5 week one, we will have to try different treatments till we find one that doesn't kink the nerve the trouble being it seems to be the 90 degree angle that is causing the nerve issue so not sure how to get around that.
