9

Favorite Spica Journey Memory:

Getting the cast off :-)

Biggest Lesson Learned:

After having two girls with hip dysplasia both diagnosed at different ages, Summer was in the cast at 3 years and Daisy was in the cast from 6 months. Early diagnosis is key.

What Do You Wish You Knew:

Other parents going through same problem, because I felt so lost and alone.

Favorite Gear or Must Have Item:

For Daisy, it was a baby bouncer and with Summer it was a large pram. Both must haves.

Final Thoughts or Advice:

It's honestly harder for the parents than the child as they adapt, and to see my 6 month old dragging that cast around was amazing, nothing stopped her. Your child will be fine. The earlier the diagnosis the better.
