Hi! My name is Stephanie & I just joined today on the recommendation of a friend who speaks very highly of this board & all the knowledgeable mommas on here.
I have two DDs (2 1/2 & almost 11 months/9 months adjusted). My younger DD has been in EI for 6 months for PT. Turns out that her only issue physically (besides being double jointed) was that since she would not let me put her down so she was not able to develop her body. Next week she is being eval'd by her eval team & based on phone conversations with them over the past couple weeks they are sure that she has a sensory processing disorder & will be starting with an OT soon. Her PT spoke with an OT for us since she is now ahead physically (we're just in a holding pattern waiting for OT to start) & the OT said that she will need a compression vest for sure. So, basically, I am hoping that someone can tell me what it is like to have a baby in a compression vest. Is it an everyday, all day type thing or just short periods? Do you see an immediate improvement or is it gradual? Truthfully I don't even know where to start with questions because I know so little about them- any resources that I could be pointed to would be great too (books, websites, etc.). TIA! I like to go into situations with a base of knowledge rather than be blindsided.
