My son is 9 months old and has been pulling to a stand for a month and cruising for a few weeks. He just got SMOs last week and when wearing them (in a flexible frame but hard soled shoe, like a vans slip on) he won’t even try to pull to a stand. Not that he can’t but he won’t try. And he gets frustrated and upset until we take them off and then he pulls up immediately.
Any tips on encouraging him to pull up when wearing the orthotics? He also is very bad at cruising while wearing them but I’m sure that will come with time!
*SMOs are for severe pronation, hyper mobility, and external tibial torsion.
