Hello ladies. I'm not sure I'm in the right place but I'm sure you can point me in the right direction if I'm not.
My close friend has a 5-month old baby boy with clubbed feet. His condition was severe at birth. They did the casts for several months. At 3 months he got the surgery. It went very well. He just got the post-surgery casts taken off and they are using the bars now.
My question is this:
How long does it take little babies to get used to the bars?
The reason I'm asking is that my friend says that since she introduced the bars to her little man last week, he isn't the same. He seems depressed. He usually smiles and coos all day. And now that he cannot kick like he used to do, he seems really sad. He hasn't smiled for days. My friend's heart is broken because of her baby boy's response. We are hoping that he'll be able to be his happy ol' self soon.
Any thoughts/comments are appreciated. We live in a small town and don't have a lot of resources available to us.
thanks in advance
