Answer: hi dear! This happens because the tissues that connect muscles to bone (called tendons) in your baby's leg and foot are shorter than usual. Babies with clubfoot also may have abnormal foot bones, ankle joints and muscles. Clubfoot is a common birth defect.Sometimes nonsurgical treatments, such as casting, can correct clubfoot.

With proper treatment, however, the majority of children are able to enjoy a wide range of physical activities with little trace of the deformity. so do consult with your doctor about the casting that can be done. take care dear

Question: What is the reason of clubfoot in new borns
Answer: hi dear! there is no particular specific cause for clubfoot to take place. some genetic changes can cause this . clubfoot is when the baby's foot is facing inwards as the tendons and the muscles in the foot are shorter than normal. normally with this condition a cast will be put when the baby is delivered as the baby's tendon stretch very easily and can bend too so it becomes easy for the foot to get into original shape. so dont worry but treatment is important. take care.
