Below are some more tips that don’t really warrant a category on their own, but will definitely come in handy when caring for your Clubfoot child.
Children born with Clubfoot typically have smaller feet than children with out Clubfoot. For those with bilateral talipes this may not pose a problem. However, those children born with only one Clubfoot may end up with one foot being up to a whole size smaller than the other. Some shoe retailers will sell you different size shoes – Clarks™ for instance – so check this out before buying two pairs in different sizes.
Expensive shoes with “extra support” are not necessary for the Clubfoot child. Don’t feel you are doing them harm by putting them in $20 shoes from Target™!
