Btw, we got her DAFO's yesterday. She screamed the entire time we were putting them on and adjusting. Eventually she got used to them and stop whimpering. It sure made me feel bad but it was amazing the change in her leg tone with the DAFO's. Craziness. I'm heading to the store today to buy socks and shoes! Wish me luck!

I know I just posted yesterday, but I have a question. For those of you familiar with walkers. We've been watching Reagan for awhile now and trying different things to get her to stand. It seems like when she receives extra support she's more willing to stand and attempt walking. Most of the time the support needs to be in her chest region. Our PT suggested we add a snug seat to our pediatric walker. She said that the Gait Trainer might be too cumbersome and that Reagan didn't need that much support, but that a Snug Seat would be her best bet. Have any of you ever used these? What are your thoughts?
