I've got this sore dull pain on the top of my right hip right on the side so not the joint, which feels like a bruise would or perhaps like it needs to be stretched but it's neither of those and I just wondered if anyone else has something similar and maybe it's related to baby carrying?
DS1 is 4 months old and 8kg so he's certainly heavy.

I get sore hips from baby carrying. I took magnesia and it seemed to help.
If it continues or gets worse it's definitely worth looking into

I also get sore hips from carrying too long/walking too far with my 10kg 16 month old.

Have a look at trocanteric bursitis (or hip bursitis). Its really common. I have it. It causes pain in the side of the hip thst often radiates down the leg. Often you can't sleep on that side.
Cortisone injections works wonders. Also exercise like yiga and pilates is useful to build core strength.

Do you wear jeans/clothes that potentially dig around the hips at all? another possibility.

I developed pain in my right hip that kept getting worse - it appeared to be caused by me always bracing myself on that side when picking up DD (DD being an 18kg 3.5yr old). I stopped picking her up all the time & it helped alot.
Sleeping with a pillow between my knees helped too.
