Hey I've just found out that my 15 month old daughter was born with a dislocated hip. She's going to need an operation to put the joint where it should be, she'll be in cast for 6 weeks. Then another operation where the cut the thigh bone and align the knee and foot to where it should be, she'll be in cast or a further 12 weeks. Is this normal for DDH? I'm worried about getting out and about with the cast and also feeding time as she won't be able to use the highchair that we have. Also worried about buggy and car seat use. Anyone got any tips on how to make getting about easier??
