HI, Ok my baby is still in the oven..but I stalk over here quite abit because...I'd like to know what I am in for...anyways...I was told that my baby will have a club foot. Does anyone's LO have this? Is s/he walking already...what did you do to help them with it? Any advice would be helpful Thank you!!!! :)

My lo's club feet were a result of him being breech and transverese for a lot of the time. They said he feet will straighten out. They were very much pointed inward and many comments from little kiddi cousins such as 'eww why are his legs and feet like that' just killed so i took him to a private orthopeadic (sp?) and he confirmed that they will straighten out and he's now 5.5 months (well 6 on the 18th) and they are looking real good. Drs did said his hips were fine but if there was hip dislocation he would need a cast/brace for the first year of life but thankfully all is well...i hope so anyway i wont know till he walks!

When my baby boy was born one of his feet were turned up and inward and they had to get another doc to check it out. It turned out not to be club foot, just something he would grow out of and he did like a month later. I still do not remember which foot it was. They said it was due to the position he was in in the womb. I hope everything works out for you and your baby.

are you sure there are no other problems with your baby cause club foot is also a soft marker for trisomy 18. I hope that is not the case and good luck.
