    She was. She used to just go floppy and refuse to bare weight at all. She's been a tad delayed with gross motor milestones (well that's what the paed said).

    mild DDH often goes undetected because its very easy to miss,
    I picked my ds2s up, his GP/ob cleared his hips ... TWICE when he had mild ddh,

    He's 2 y 8 m now and we're off to the physio despite having got the all clear at 10 months as I am concerned about his sitting behaviours

    I had severe ddh at birth, surgery at 9 months,
    By xray my hips are 'normal' by usage not at all. I have ZERO ability to turn my leg inwards

    @Mamasupial you sound like you've had a lot going on with your daughter. First off you are not an awful parent. Hip dysplasia is really tricky and with my youngest if she had been born 3 years earlier she wouldn't have been braced. I'm still not convinced the brace did much for her at all and she just grew into her hips. She was very borderline.

    Let us know how you go with the X-ray.

    Yes I should have added that you aren't an awful parent at all ddh is easily missed hence why they are trying to make hip scans compulsory for all babies at 6 weeks. My second daughter only got scanned because on mine and my first dd hip history we had at least 3 paeds a couple of doctors and the child health nurses check mine out and didn't detect anything and she had moderately bad ddh so definitely don't feel bad if she has it it is just one of those things that can be missed

    Hope you get some answers. You're by no means an awful parent. It can be very hard to pick this up when kids can't tell you what's going on, and you're (presumably) not a relevant medical expert.

    Please don't beat yourself up about it.

    My now 13 year old was breech (risk factor for hip dysplasia). She passed all external checks at birth and I was told her hips were stable. I was given a referral for an ultrasound only because she was breech. When she had her hip ultrasound at 6 weeks, she had it in both hips, one was at 0% which is about as bad as it can get. Moral of my story - it can be easy to miss.

    GP gave us a form for an US.

    Paed might be more help on the 23rd

    From my experience she will need an xray.

    My DD had an ultrasound at 6 weeks and one more (can't remember what age). After that it was xrays only. I was told that ultrasounds were only accurate to a certain age and xrays had to be done.

    My DD was in a pavlic harness for 4 months. She had a number of xrays during that time, and follow ups until age 5/6.
