With her baby’s feet moving around, putting on baby socks is not an easy task for a quadriplegic with no finger movement!

Meg starts by using both hands to get an opening in the top of the sock. Then, by using one arm and/or her fingers to (try to) stabilize one of her baby’s legs, she uses her other hand to work the sock around her baby’s feet. Sometimes she even uses her teeth to get the sock open in the right way to get it on her baby’s feet. It gets kicked off a few times, but Meg gets it on, slowly, but surely.
