I'm so proud of how well she's doing thus far. I'm hoping that part-time wear will help her sleep better, but so far that's not the case. I'm tempted to reach out to Dr. Jex and ask him about a different type of bar (Dobbs bar) that allows the legs to move independently. I've heard from other club foot parents that their children have been able to get into a more comfortable sleeping position in that bar and I'm desperate for better sleep. I want to get her doctor's opinion on it though because it's also controversial as to whether or not children have an increased chance for relapse in the Dobbs bar.
On a positive note, since going to pt wear, Charlotte has started sitting well on her own, moving from a sitting position to a crawling position and back to sitting, and even started crawling some in the past few days. So far, she's meeting her physical milestones at an earlier age than her non-club foot, big brother did. Again, I'm so proud of her.
Thanks, as always, for checking our blog and for continuing to pray for Charlotte!
