Pediatrician 's  Response

Thank you for your query.

I can understand your concern. However you have not provided the following details:
1. Age of your son.
2. From when have you noted the problem.
3. Any abnormality in gait.
If this posturer problem is of recent origin and the doctors consider it to be normal then it shall be appropriate to wait and watch for another 2-3 weeks. Children around 1-2 years of age may keep their legs in a position where they are stable while standing. This gets corrected as they grow.

I will not comment on the vitamin D level as the standards of every lab varies and it should be interpreted keeping that lab's standards in view.

I hope I have answered your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your son all the best.
