Oliver has these leg braces to help keep his feet in place after he got his casts off. He got these braces when he was 10 weeks old.

He will wear them until he is about a year...until he is walking and then the walking will stabilize his feet. We get to take them off 3 times a day, which he LOVES! and we have to do foot stretches.
