Today was a BAD day.

Kaiya had her specialist appointment in the morning about her hip. The Orthopedist agrees that she most definitely has DDH (Developmental Displasia of the Hip) and got her fitted in her harness. Well she didn't cry as much as Mommy did. I cried and cried. Then I cried all the way home, I cried when I fed her, I cried when I changed her then I cried myself to sleep when Daddy was snuggling with her only to wake up and cry again when I fed her the second time.

I can tell that she is stressed out. She definitely isn't eating like a piggy today and she is clinging to us like a tiny monkey. I hate this! I hate that she is going through this and that she needs to be so uncomfortable. The Doc is thinking that she will need to wear the harness for 12 weeks full time. So in that time we cannot bathe her, only sponge baths. We cannot take it off and she will not be learning to roll over till it is removed. *la sigh* I am so upset! Oh and we were warned that babies with these harnesses on tend to be more gassy, great! She already has tooting problems and now she will have more. I think we might actually end up with a colicky baby.
