I think you are referring to the Dennis browne splint. Till walking age they have to be worn 24 hours. (70 degree approx both side). Once your child starts walking then Dennis Brown Shoe in day time for approx 2 hours with Dennis Brown Splint over Night(12 hours) - Total 14-16 hours.  This is for next 1.5 years. Then DB shoes 4-6 hours in a day till 6-9years of age.

This regime depends on the child built and the reduction or deformity... it is customised for each child.
