My dd is 6 months old and I noticed an extra crease on her right thigh. Dr.’s are driving us crazy. We’re going to an orthopedic soon. Plus they recommended an abdominal ultrasound. Anyone has experienced this? Please advise. Please share your experience if your child has something similar. Help is highly appreciated.

My LO (8m) has this and I never considered this an issue, never consulted a doctor about it. He's in muslins/terries since birth and moving/crawling/walking as expected so I'm ignoring this for now. They checked his hips at birth and all was well, so that's it. Can inbox you a pic if you are too worried.

Thank you so much!! I am now little relax hearing this from you. We’re meeting with a Pedia Ortho next week. Other reports were normal. Hopefully it is nothing serious.

Think it can be a sign of hip dysplasia. I know two children treated for this, no issues now.

I didn't know this could be an issue but our daughter had an extra crease and she has had no issues, now walking at 12 months.
