    Gosh, that must be tough. I hope it has done the trick and she won't need anything further.

    My daughter had clicky hips, actually one fully dislocated and yet to round hip socket, the other was fine, but she was picked up early, at 3 days old she was off to children's hospital to be fitted with brace, because her foot was turned in and over (slightly clubbed no surgery just positional due to hip) and that can often suggest a hip issue.

    My son was also clicky and checked out early, but no where near as early as he had other problems and had op at 6 weeks. So around the 12 week mark. He was x rayed because they were not 100% sure whether to treat. Would have said don't worry about it but because of family history got x rayed instead. He was slightly off but they felt he should be able to realign when hip completely formed as he was half in. Had an extra referral later to ensure this was the case because otherwise he would have to be treated. He was fine. No brace needed.

    In saying all of that if there actually is a dislocation the earlier it's picked up the better, the more chance a brace can fix the job rather than surgery later on. My daughter was only in the brace for 3-4 months, as sad as it was and annoying to hold and especially feed her it really wasn't that bad. Had children learning to walk in the braces because they were picked up later and had to be in the brace for 6 months before determining if it was working or if surgery was needed. So don't panic!

    Thank you!! NN I'm glad it was easily fixed for your bub. I'm hopefully just worrying about nothing so fingers crossed
