Sheepskin: Another clubfoot mom recommended that we put sheepskin on the tongue of the boot, to minimize the chance of pressure sores on the top of the foot. This has been a lifesaver for us! Some parents take the boots to a shoe repair shop and have them sew sheepskin in.
Glue for Do-it-yourself Sheepskin: We glued our sheepskin with Barge leather glue, and it has held steady for several months & counting. Others have had success with E6000 glue, which can also be purchased at Walmart or a craft supply store.
Moleskin: We put this in the heel of the boot (in between the two holes) to soften it up. We also fold a piece of moleskin over the back top piece of the boot, to minimize rubbing on her leg.
The Parents' Guide to Clubfoot: A book filled with useful information for your journey.
Baby powder: We put three shakes of powder in each sock, and change the socks in the morning and at night. This helps with sweatiness.
Johnson’s Head to Toe Cleansing Cloths: These worked really well for us while our baby was wearing casts and couldn’t take baths.
Johnson’s Baby Bedtime Washcloths: These worked really well for us while our baby was wearing casts and couldn’t take baths. They're soapier than the Head to Toe Cleansing Cloths.
Friction block stick: We rub this on her heels as well as the tops & sides of her feet – anywhere we’ve seen redness – to decrease rubbing and minimize the chance of blisters. *NOTE* Don't pay more than $8 for this! If you click the image & it's expensive on Amazon, get it here from Target or get the Dr. Scholl's version here from WalMart.
Infant Tylenol: We used this throughout castings and at the start of B&B, at the direction of our doctor.
Molefoam: Some parents put molefoam on the tongue instead of sheepskin. It is easier to remove than sheepskin. We haven't tried it, but other parents have had good success with it!
Duoderm & bacitracin ointment: We bought these to have on hand, in case of blisters.
