My daughter was born May 29... I knew something was wrong but everybody kept disagreeing with me... Finally I argued with my doctor to get me a referral for an orthopedic surgeon. The first surgeon kept beating around the bush and would not give us a definite diagnosis. In my heart I knew it was a clubfoot but I was just waiting on someone to confirm it. We finally came across the doctor who gave us the information that she was diagnosed with a right clubfoot. We are on week seven of casting her right leg and are now in the dorsiflex position. Next Thursday this cast comes off and we begin the boots with the bars.. I guess I am just really nervous about starting that next steep. My sweet baby fork loves her sleep and i think this is going to disrupt her sleep schedule... Any help or advice for me and my family.. I am so nervous and so emotionally drained and I need to talk to people that know what I am going through. I really really
Hope to hear from someone on here

My daughter has had her braces on since October 18 and we have had such a positive response from her and her progress. Just went today for her 2 week follow up and things are going great. 12 more weeks of 24 hours a day and then we get to move to 18 hours a day.
I will keep your son in my thoughts that something works. My surgeon is amazing... He is here in Cincinnati Dr. Tamai.

I am here to talk if you need it... My 19 month old son was born with bilateral... It's been a roller coaster ride... We are currently waiting for our referral to go through for Shriners hospital in South Carolina.... I really can't give much advice as my son is still uncorrected due to failed attempts by several different doctors...
