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. Casting is a method for correcting clubfoot in the hopes of avoiding surgery.
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: How common is red rashes in newborns ??
Pink pimples ('neonatal acne') are sometimes thought to be caused by exposure in the womb to maternal hormones. No treatment is needed, just time. They can last for weeks or even months on a baby's skin. Erythema toxicum is another common newborn rash.
Pimples sometimes develop on a baby's cheeks, nose and forehead within a month of their birth.
These tend to get worse before clearing up completely after a few weeks or months.
Washing your baby's face with water and a mild moisturiser can improve the appearance of their skin.
Avoid acne medicines intended for older children and adults.
