The hips don’t lie!

Our little Bonnie is continuing to keep us on our toes. She has an immature hip joint, this has been being monitored for a while now but Monday saw us back at the hospital and her being fitted into a Pavlik harness. She doesn’t actually seem all that concerned by it and it’s possible that we are more distressed about it than she is!


What really surprised us was the reaction to her real nappy. They had never seen them being used and asked us where we got such things! You would have thought we were doing something really bizarre and unusual!

In fact the extra width and support cloth nappies provide helps to keep hips in a better position and is beneficial for hip development, so it shocked me that they would not be more aware of them.

I feel better knowing that the decisions we have made regarding nappies have even more benefits than we had realised! Hopefully Bonnie will be free of her constraints soon. ๐Ÿ™‚
