Mama to L (7) and A (born 7/15 by VBAC)
Ds' back is fine no spina bifida. IMO as long as there is nothing wrong it is just a cute dimple.

They only u/s my son because I had severe polyhydraminios, he had some issues and was in the NICU. Had I had a normal pregnancy and everything was fine they probably wouldn't have checked him.

This is a thread in the Allergies forum where we discussed the topic, with an eye to dealing with the health issues many of us have been working on, either in us, the parents, or in our kids.
kittywitty--fascinating that your DD's went away. Just recently I noticed that DS's is gone (he's 4).
It isn't an issue usually, just different. It *can* indicate an issue with the spine but most are harmless.
It can be a marker for spina bifida and or tethered cord. Just like a tuft of hair or hemangioma at the base of the spine. In our case it was a hemangioma that was Gabrielle's marker for Lipomyelomeningocele, Tethered Spinal Cord (and she has Neurogenic Bladder and Bowel).
