Hello mums, my eight month old baby had her routine checkup and MCHN noticed clicking sounds in left hip. She told me it might be hip dysplasia. She has referred me to GP and I am planning to go soon but I can’t wait. What I want to know is can this be a factor in my child’s unique way of crawling? It’s my third bub and I haven’t noticed this type of crawling before in any of them. She drags herself by her arms and does not hold her legs up while crawling. They are lying straight out the back, but she does use her foot a bit to assist with her crawling. Anyone had the same experience? Just need some some peace of mind that it’s going to be ok?
