DD had her 2 month checkup and shots today. While the shots broke my heart, she handled it very well and only cried for about 5 mins after.
However, when my pedi was checking out her back, she looked very closely at her bottom and pulled her cheeks apart to look. Afterward she told me that the patch of darker hair above her bottom can be an indicator of spina bfida but that she didn't have the dimple that usually occurs with it and she was moving her legs appropriately so she wasn't concerned.
I know if my pedi isn't concerned that I shouldn't be either but come on. How am I not supposed to worry now? I kind of wish she never would have told me that's what she was doing. Has anyone else experienced this or have anything to add?
