    That's fantastic news! I'm so happy for you and your DD!! There is a great DDH support group on Facebook, lots of lovely parents there who offered me advice and support when I was going through the scans and stuff with my DD2. She ended up not needing a brace, we just had a scan that wasn't accurate which threw everything into disarray. Very stressful but grateful to have it end the way it did

    If you look up 'Developmental Dysplasia of the Hip (DDH) Babies, Kids & Adults on Facebook you should find them there. You need to request permission to join but the mods are quick to add people and I am sure there would be heaps of parents who could tell you if their babies brace has affected their sleep, they might even have some tips

    My little monster refused her afternoon nap today, but she had a cat nap in the car, 5 mins before getting home....both my girls refuse to sleep of they've had even the tiniest of naps in the car. Drives me nuts!

    Scary thing is she didn't seem too tired or bothered come bed time tonight. Me on the other hand., I was hanging for her and DD1's bed time....haha!

    Awesome! Thanks for that! I was in denial when they told me about my DD and went to the orthopedic surgeon thinking it was a mistake and she may not need a brace and then was thankful when he said it was very severe, but we could get away with a brace rather than surgery

    A 5 min nap would kill me, you poor thing! My DD screamed on and off the entire way home (30 mins) and some of the way there today. Thank god I had a dummy actually, but I had to keep stopping every couple of mins to get it from down the side of the door. Ahhh! Not a fun drive!!! If only she would sleep in the car, because she was screaming cos she was tired! I had to rock her to sleep the second we got home and lay with her and then I put her to bed at 6:30 . Mostly because she was up from 1-3 last night...ehh I think it's teeth, but I say that from time to time and still no chompers!! I hope your girls went down with ease x
