CDing and bowlegs

Abby's only a month so she's still got those frog-like legs. LOL At nighttime, we double-stuff her FB so I don't have to wake her more to change her dipe. It isn't super thick between the legs, but does fill out the FB more. She doesn't seem bugged. I'm just wondering (read: being a paranoid new mom) if she'll be bowlegged forever. Did your kid grow out of it even in CDs?

Re: CDing and bowlegs

I agree, they WILL go away. It's not the CDs, it's their little legs. DS was in sposies iuntil 4 months and he was still like that with sposies.

Good. It's nice to know I'm not aggravating with cloth, kwim? But then I tell myself if I was, then how come my sister who was in huge, bulky prefolds (my parents could only afford one size prefold so they just folded it more) and pins isn't bow-legged. In fact, she's just the opposite and is pigeon-toed.

Re: CDing and bowlegs

oh yeah - all babies have bowed legs. we didn't cd dd until she was 9 months and hers were like that. you'll notice it straightening out as they get stronger and start putting weight on it, etc.

Re: CDing and bowlegs

Someone on the forums (can't remember who now) had said something that made a lot of sense. Disposable diapers haven't been around forever. Before that everyone used cloth and the entire population wasn't walking around bowlegged

I'm pretty sure that one of the "treatments" for bowleggedness is double-diapering. So I figure CDing is like a preventative measure.

Re: CDing and bowlegs

hmmm...never heard that one (the treatment theory) but yes it does fade...sometimes not until past a year old. they get over it as most do. some don't straighten out until they begin walking..others do. i don't think there's really anything we do as parents to actually cause bowleggedness lol. my grammy swore my oldest was going to be bowlegged b/c he loved to stand and "walk" supported at a couple months old and would yell at me for allowing it. guess what? he has wonderfully straight legs and is superadvanced in all his fine motor skills...you should see the kid do a flip using one hand lol, and yes he's just 4. but remember...i ruined him when he was 2 months old by allowing him to stand supported lol.
