I found exact matches of andrews feet..Bi-lateral Metatarsus Varus. So while its treatable with casts and/or surgery, no dr has caught it agreed there was something going on but he'd outgrow it...well yes its possible but not probable after 3 months! It's caused by confinement in utero. Weird that it affected both feet as did the cranio?? And i kept telling everyone he was stuck but i'm not educated enough to make that call. I'm super irritated by this so who do i go to now? I'm sorry i hate the idea of something else wrong.

:hugg I would go to your gp armed with print outs of feet like andrew and demand that he looks at them in front of you xx

I googled like a crazy woman last night and I'm printing out some stuff to do with my son for our appt in May.
I agree with Chloe....go in with your print outs. I had to do the same thing when I was trying to get Fiona diagnosed. Dr's don't know everything and I'm starting to figure that out pretty fast!

I'm sorry your concerns are not being addressed. I agree with Chloe go to the Dr. armed with the info you found. I think it is crazy when Drs ignore complaints when your pregnant as if the child isnt growing inside you or something! He was your 6th pregnancy - of course you knew he was stuck! :) When I told the nurse at my OB check that KD was breech they told me I was crazy but I wasnt. You may not be a professional but you know your body and your baby best!

:hugg I'm so sorry, agree with others take your info to your Dr. And tell them if they won't address it you will find someone who will! Good luck, and let us know what they say!
My son had very curved in feet and bowed legs. He was seen by an orthopedic dr when he was about 18 mo. He was diagnosed with tibial torsion for his legs and the dr said his feet would straightn out with time. His feet have gotten much better. When he was smaller i would do gentle stretches a few times a day to straighten them out and put his shoes on the wrong feet around the house. Don't know if that helped or if it was just time. Hope you get the answers you need to ease your mind.
