Anyone's baby have hip displaysia/Pavlik Harness?

My DD was born with hip displaysia and was in a Pavlik Harness for 3 months. She's doing fine now (she's 8.5mos) and we've had follow up x-rays, check ups, etc. Except she's behind on crawling and pushing up on all fours. Our orthopedist does not seem concerned, but I just wonder if other parents have experienced this with babies in the harness.

She sits up great, and loves to stand with us holding her hands or leaning against something. She pretty sturdy in that respect. But it seems like she still hasn't figured out how to use her legs/hips for crawling. She'll lean forward from sitting and then just fall flat on her face. And she still HATES being on her stomach. Anyone with similar experiences?
