Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.
Pain may be because of exaggeration of the deformity or due to pressure on skeleton and musculature because of child weight.
You can take calcium supplements for bone strength.
If the pain is significant, take ibuprofen in prescribed dose with food.
Change the position frequently and don't sit for prolonged periods in one posture.
Sit and lie down in accurate and straight posture.
If the pain persists consult the orthopedician for examination and further advise.
Hope I have answered your query.
