Crooked Buttcrack

Okay I know that is a weird title but my baby was born by c-section and her but crack goes up her back and to the right. Kind of like a scar but it's not a scar. Is that from the surgery or is she just like that? It doesn't give her any problems it just looks really weird. I hope that it goes away but I don't think so cause it's kind of deep just like the crack would be. Maybe I could post a pic of it.

I was not born by c-section and I actually have it. My mom said that they never worried about it. But I did some research on it before when I got older and the only thing I could find out about it was that supposedly it's a very very mild and unharmful form of spina bfida. I dont' know how true it is as I've never looked into more than that but I've never had any real problems and the doctors have never thought it was a big deal. It's something like 20

er that was supposed to say "something like 20% of kids are born with it" and sometimes it straightens itself out and other times it doesn't.

Nope. Changes nothing as that's exactly the same thing I was talking about.

My son was delivered by c section and doesn't have that, so it's not necessarily because of that. It is probably just one of the things that makes her unique. If it is not causing her any problems, I'd say don't worry too much.
