    Well it turns out its a sacral dimple and she might need a scan. I showed it to the HV and I've booked an appointment with the GP. She says its genetic? Anyone else have any experience of this??

    My friends little newborn was born with one. She has just had a scan to check for kidney problems as apparently they are common with this. Little baby is absolutely fine though. Hope yours is too. xxxx Hugs xxx

    Yeah I chose a deliberately provocative title to the thread so I knew people would read it :haha: if I wrote "sacral dimple" I thought I'd get no replies!

    Thank you every one! xx

    My lo has one, possibly because she's missing her coccyx (tail bone). They did an ultrasound on her spine and sacrum, and everything else is normal. It won't affect her at all!

    My neice has this and was told that she has spina bifida occulta. THey said it's actually fairly common and most people don't even know they have it until later in life. For example- when they go to have a baby and an epidural and things are not quite in the right spot. Not a big deal though!!

    PS I saw your OH the otherday when he was at work, I kept staring at him as I couldn't remember when I recognised him from at first so he probably thought I was some crazy lady with a pram!

    Ooh I think my baby has one too! It was never given a name though. She had some issues when I was pregnant/when she was first born so at one of her check ups with the doctor when she was about 3 months old they noticed it. The doc examining her got a more experienced colleague and he had a look, checked how deep it was and said it wasn't a problem and just to keep it clean as it could house lots of bacteria.

    My mum has a sacral dimple, so do I, and so does Isobel... we definitely prove the hereditary theory correct lol! Isobel has a consultant appointment at 12 weeks to check its sealed off inside (as it wasn't possible to see when she was smaller).

    It's never posed a problem for me or my mum, and so far Isobel seems fine and her legs are strong. So hopefully hers will be nothing to worry about.

    I'm careful to clean it though, just as you would with other folds and nooks and crannys where dirt and bacteria can build up.

    Matthew has 1, we had an ultrasound done on it at birth and it's all fine. We do tick a lot of the boxes that suggest it's something more serious though which is why they were so concerned.

    Both my kids have them. Otter's is more pronounced than DK's. Several doctors have looked at them, none have ever been worried. Their development has been just fine. :thumbup:

    I've got one and so has LO-it's never caused me any problems and LO had an x-ray of her pelvis to check her hips as she was breech and it all looked normal.
