Two Weeks in Braces

So it's been two and a half weeks of bracing. We've had one week with the original shoes that had the crappy rubber insert and then the rest of the time with big brothers old shoes. Our doctor said it was "very resourceful" of us to switch to the old shoes.

Baby girls feet are still angled down when at a resting position. We've been doing her physical therapy stretching, but I have a feeling the tenotomy will be our destiny.

Here is a photo of big brother's legs after one week of braces and then little sister after two weeks... see the difference? Daughter is in blue and our boy is in brown. Yeah... she's doomed.

Our doctor also said that there isn't anything we can do about her toes right now.


  1. Hi,

    Just saw you were following my blog so I popped over here to check out your blog. Nice to see another clubfoot mommy!

    I totally see what you are seeing in that photo. Hoping she can avoid the tenotomy. That said, my son Matthew had it done at 4 1/2 m and it made ALL the difference in the world.

  2. Yes - I just started to take a peek at your blog the other day. It IS nice to find other moms with similar journey's. Thanks for the note! :)
