My son, Liam (now 3 months) was born with a right club foot. He did six weeks of weekly casts, a heel cord procedure, a final cast for three weeks and is now in Denis Brown boots and bar. We have struggled with these for a month and have two months to go of wearing them all the time.
The issue is that Liam hates these boots, he screams bloody murder every time I put them on. He also seems to be able to work his feet out of them. Anybody have any suggestions for helping to get him to not hate these shoes and to keep them on his feet?? He is such a happy baby when the shoes are off, but as soon as they go on, he is miserable. :(
Also, he has developed a blister on the back of his left foot . . . anyone have any suggestions to prevent this and get it healed?
