RE: Straight last shoes
Yes, like pp he's being treated for metatarsus adducutus but not severe. He was not cast as an infant as our then-ped was too laid back about this and now we've years of treatment ahead of us and possibly surgery when DS is around 5 or 6. I realize each insurance company is different but pp's experience is good to hear.
Thanks for the response.

"Everything is interconnected. Gratitude improves sleep. Sleep reduces pain. Reduced pain improves your mood. Improved mood reduces anxiety, which improves focus and planning. Focus and planning help with decision-making. Decision-making further reduces anxiety and improves enjoyment. Enjoyment gives you more to be grateful for, which keeps that loop of the upward spiral going. Enjoyment makes it more likely you’ll exercise and be social, which, in turn, makes you happier.” - UCLA neuroscience researcher Alex Korb
"Fear is nothing more than a lingering emotion that’s fueled by your imagination. Danger is real. Danger is the uncomfortable rush of adrenaline you get when you almost step in front of a bus; fear is a choice." Dr. Travis Bradbury
