Feeling so deflated. Just looking for advise or someone to share stories.
My second child was placed in a Von Rosen splint when she was born due to her being frank breech and very obviously dislocated hips.
Because of this, every other child I've had automatically has an ultrasound to check their hips.
I wasn't expecting anything to come back about the ultrasound and the hip was apparently only few degrees off normal and was told they usually correct themselves but saw an ortho anyway.
Turns out my now 11 week old has two ddh and is now in a Denis Browne bar. His muscles are tight and we are hoping the brace will release the tension in the muscles.
The surgeon didn't give much confidence that my baby will be out of the brace any time soon, in fact said he will need it until he's reached some milestones - ie crawling and walking.
I wish I had found out sooner. I feel terrible.
Can anyone shed some light on how long their little ones were in a brace if it was detected at this later age?
