Toddler with diastasis recti?

My baby has had diastasis recti since he was born. His doctors said it's no problem as an infant. He is 19 months old and about to have his 18mo WBC, and I was going to ask the doctor. It hasn't changed or gotten any better or worse since he was born.

Like I said, we will ask the doc, but does anyone have any experience with this? I assumed it would have resolved naturally by now.

Re: Toddler with diastasis recti?

Hello mamas. I do not have experience with this and frankly I did not know a young child could have this. I would like to ask, is this considered to be related to the the birth defects called "abdominal wall defects"? (Those include conditions such as gastroschesis and oomphalocele). I mention it bc "if" it is a mild form of an abdominal wall defect, maybe that would be a direction for you to seek further research/inquiry. I know there are support groups for those. Following your post. I hope you get answers and testimonies. Hugs.
