My Taos

Makenzie's Taos walker came in at the end of last week. Today it was finally ready to use. She loved it. I think it is a great walker for Makenzie. There are a few issues I have but hopefully we will be able to come up with some ways to fix those issues.

My biggest issue I have with pretty much every walker we had tried is the lack of upper trunk support. Makenzie can stand up straight and she can walk with her head up. However, she also flexes a lot in the walker. I am pretty sure this frustrates me more then it does Makenzie because she will bend down and just giggle. Mommy doesn't think it is funny!

I think adjusting the trunk support will be helpful.  I was looking at some of the videos that the company who makes this walker has put out. Pretty much every single kiddo has the top trunk support right under the armpits.

If you look at Makenzie this support is much much lower.

We may also need something that will hold Makenzie's shoulders up. She works really hard and sometimes that is ok but sometimes I would love for her to just be able to enjoy walking and playing while letting something else hold her up.

Today is going to be a super busy day. Makenzie has back to back appointments from 8am to about 3 pm. Pray that this mommy can keep up with all of this busyness!

Believe... Prayer Works!

She looks great in the TAOS, the thoracic bars can be raised, but we like the kiddos (if they can) to have a little less support to aid in gaining more muscular in their torso. Check with Ascent or contact me with any questions! Great pictures
