I do know that several CMTC kids have had compression garments at a young age and I know that in those cases it was for AVMs. I would guess that it is just an issue with the particular place you are working with. We didn't want to spend the money because we weren't sure how much compression to use and how effective it would be with our daughter. We did however have her wear tights as an infant to give some light compression to aide in circulation. Sorry, I don't really know of the places that other families used to get their custom garments for smaller kids. I will ask around a little and if I find out anything I will come back and post.
