Hip problems in toddlers?

my 4 month old daughter has to go for an x-ray to see if she has hip dysplasia, which at the minute i'm not worrying about until she gets the x-ray and we get the results. However, for a few months I have been watching my almost 3 year old son trying to run to keep up with his cousin, who is the same age, and he really seems to struggle and tires so easily.I have always noticed that he ran with a bit of a wiggle and almost a limp, but just put it down to wearing a bulky nappy. He is now totally potty trained and wears proper pants and still runs like this. I have made an appointment to see a doctor but have to wait 3 weeks. I am really just wondering has anyone else noticed this with their toddler and am I just being a worry wart? I asked him does he find it sore or hard to run and he said it's very hard but not sore, however he also tells me there is a dinosaur living in his bedroom...

Any advice would be appreciated until the doctor can confirm anything.

no worry wart, just a concerned and watchful mother :) . hip problems do run in families and as your mom radar has picked up a problem with your oldest. the doctors probably didn't pick up on it before because he might have had a mild case of it and then just got more noticeable when he grew up. until the doctor's visit do more nonactive things. yes let him play, but not as much until the doctor tells you different. just because it doesn't hurt doesn't mean there isn't any problems. keep up the good work!
