Reagan was measured for her DAFO's today. It was bittersweet. I cried after our PT left. I'm grateful for these devices, I'm grateful for a PT. I know the braces will help her, but it's just another one of those little things that remind me our path is slightly different than others. Hence the crying.
We just ordered them and since we're paying out of pocket they should be here by the end of next week. I would love to hear anything about DAFO's... other than what my PT has told me I have no clue how to work them. Do they wear them all day and all night? Or just in the daytime? How long did it take your child to get adjusted to the extra weight? Right now I have Reagan shoeless because she balances easier and is more willing to walk that way. It sounds like the DAFO's work best with shoes on. Right? For those of you who have DAFO's, what has your experience been? I know we'll have to buy bigger shoes. Any suggestions? I don't even know how to put them on her. Help!
