Good evening, I am Dr Ruff, thank you for contacting us today
They are indeed walking early, therefore this is not uncommon.
Have they had surgery or casting for the hip dysplasia?
Sorry, I had misread that. This is quite normal at an early age as they develop better muscle tone.
It should gradually improve with time, I would therefore suspect no more than a few months.
If you feel it is not improving, then ask your GP to refer them to your local paediatric team for this to be assessed.
That is my pleasure, all the best. I hope this improves soon.
