Hi mums,
I was just wondering have any other mums experienced a “slight webbing” on the … ?index toe (equivalent to index finger) and middle toe?
My 6 week old baby has this and I have never experienced this or heard of it and I am just reaching out for reassurance… The dr said it wouldn’t affect him apart from cosmetically and if I decided to have it “fixed” then that would be my personal choice… I don’t want to as I don’t deem it necessary if it doesn’t physically affect him.
Looking forward to hearing from other mums.

  • I think, once he starts school, you may change your mind. Kids will be so cruel when they find out. Something to think about as its most likely easier to fix it now then later. I have no experience of webbing either, except for a boy I went to school with had it and he copped a hard time about it

  • I have friends were every boy in the family has it. They kept them. My daughter was botn with an ear tag. I always said I was going to get it removed before she started school. Kids can be cruel, I had a conversation with her and she isn’t fazed with it. So it stays until and if she wants it removed.

  • yes I know of a few family as well as friends that have the webbing an some have webbing between each toe. It will not affect his walking or anything like that, My girlfriends son was born with 2 working thumbs on the same hand and even as an adult does not want it removed

  • I personally haven’t, up I know adults that do. And as the dr said cosmetically is the only look. They haven’t had any major problems
