I am probably jumping the gun here, but I am worried that this week I am going to get news that I have to put my little man into a pavlick harness on account of his loose hips.
He was diagnosed with loose hips at 6 weeks and the doctor said we won't do anything until 4 months because 9/10 times these right themselves. I was a bit unsure about this as I had heard from others including my phn that the earlier these are detected and dealt with the better (quicker recovery and it's much easier harness a young baby than one who is getting more active) so, after pestering my doctor about it a bit, and she continually reassuring me, I eventually organised x-rays etc, and the 2nd opinion doctor thinks they are still loose. We are currently awaiting results of the x-ray. I am so annoyed with myself that I waited this long (he's now nearly 5 months and is a big baby).
Anyway, I know this is not all too important in the grander scheme of things, but I was just wondering has anyone else been in this situation and been able to continue to use cloth? Somewhere at the back of my mind I am hoping that having had him in cloth this far may have helped him a bit as years ago, double diapering was one of the ways that this issue was dealt with. Anyway, as I say, this all might be a bit premature, but I am just worried about him, and would love to keep him in cloth if I could. If you google a pic of the pavlick harness it looks pretty awful... Should've kept away from google....
Thanks ladies. x
