|Poor thing :'(|
Monday Baby Hulk had his 15-18mo wellcheck and had to have 3 immunizations, one of them being DTaP. As an adult I have had it and could hardly raise my arm! The rest of the day he was dragging one leg a bit, he wouldn't bend it. I wasn't taking him shoe shopping again while he was limping around.
Tuesday morning a couple hours before PT we ran to another Target and success! A pair of cute cheap shoes that work with these blasted orthotics!
|$12.99!!! (Darling Husband says this is how you take shoe pictures.)|
During PT he walked funny in them. His butt stuck out a lot and his feet were far apart, his toes turned in. He looked a bit like a duck. She tried to work with him trying to get him to tuck his butt and move his shins more over his feet but to do this she would grab his thighs. I had to remind her he had just had shots the day before when he cried out and then she felt bad and we pretty much played with bubbles the rest of our time there.
I'm not exactly happy about these orthotics. I hope he doesn't really need them. They are a lot of work to put on him and I have a bad habit of conveniently forgetting to do things I don't like to do. We will see how this week goes. He wore them for about 45 minutes yesterday. I haven't put them on him at all today. It is hard for me! We don't wear shoes in the house. Putting shoes on my baby just to hang around the house may take some getting used to.
