So we have just found out that 8 week old DD has got a high probability of having hip dysplasia. She will have a hip ultrasound next week.
Her legs are of uneven length and she has uneven creases so CHN thinks she will probably need to wear a pavlik brace?
Obviously my DH and I are upset at hearing this news and just wondered if anyone else has experience with this?
- has anyone's baby had to wear a brace
- how did they cope with it
- did it fix the hip/how long did it take
Any info would be great
Thanks so much
