Developmental : Dysplasia of the Hip has a range of severity. If treated completely before the baby is weight-bearing, the outcome is usually excellent, so be happy it got diagnosed & follow through with all treatment recommendations. Information on http://hipdysplasia.org/developmental-dysplasia-of-the-hip/ may help you formulate questions to discuss with your baby's pediatrician & pediatric orthopedist.
