    Default Petey: Esbilac MBD Recovery

    Hey guys!
    I've noticed these little lumps on this little guy's back legs. At first they were just red dots now they look like this. Any idea what this could be? I was googling pictures of other babies and I don't notice it on any others so I'm assuming it's not normal..

    It looks like ant bites.

    He has been in my house with 0 bugs since he was 2 days old though. They're in the exact same spot on both legs.

    Just investigated it further as I was feeding him. They are hard and attached to the bone (or are the bone?) It's almost like both of his hind legs grew crooked

    I was about to say that the area on the right leg looks like a bone.
    Watch and see how the baby is able to walk as it moves about.

    He's definitely not walking yet at this point. He is getting strong in his front legs and is pulling himself around some and kicking his back legs with it but doesn't quite have the strength yet. Honestly he seems SUPER small to me too and like he's developing slower than I'm seeing a lot of the babies on here.

    I guess wait a couple weeks until he's walking more to see how his legs are working?

    What is his weight? I have noticed a phenomenon that when a baby comes in at such a young age, it seems to take them much longer to develope than others that come in older
