Spina Bifida? Aman dua Bremen, Georgia 476 posts
4th May '13

My 7 month old daughter has a discolored indention over her spine, It looks like a bruise and is about 3 inches wide. Her doctor said sometimes spots on the spine are caused by spina bifida, but he said her spine feels intact and she has no paralysis. So he says we will just watch it. She seems healthy and strong, I just wonder if I should get another doctor to look at it just to be sure.

Quoting I'm me:" how old is the baby."


She said she is 7 months.




OP- If you are really concerned it wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion. The worst that could happen is they say the same thing.

It would have showed up while your pregnant. My husband has it.
