In brief: Yes

Most breech babies maintain their in-utero pose for only a short while.
Enjoy the easier diapering position & your pediatrician will make sure your baby has normal hips & joints before you go home.

In brief: Breech

Yes they do. It can take a few days to a week to appear normal, but this will happen.
