Hi Moms,
We just got back from meeting with an orthepedic surgeon for my one year old daughter. I've noticed since she was 5 months & started standing that something was just off with her foot and different from her twin sister. She always stood on top or inside of her left foot. I mentioned it to my pediatrician several times and she just kept reassuring me she would grow out of it. She was diagnosed with a mild clubfoot on her left and mild metartarsus adductus on her right foot. I'm so upset, confused and sad that my poor baby girl is going through this and it wasn't treated sooner. She gets her first cast next week and has to be in cast for 4 weeks, then on to boot with bar followed by a nightime shoe. Just would love any help/advice from other moms who have gone through this with their baby or twins. Im feeling lost and don't even know where to begin. I really appreciate your help!!!
