My baby girl was born on October 2, 2009 amd she was born with 12 fingers and 12 toes. She is biracial and i dont know what could have caused this. I have trouble sleeping i did take benadryl while pregnant. I was also on vicodin for leg pain because she was laying on a nerve, they were all precribe by my doctor . They removed one extra finger in the hospital it was just attached by a little piece of skin and other finger was removed on November 12, 2009. The Doctors do not want to remove her extra toes until shes atleast a year old. I'm worried it going to effect her walking crawling. Shes not going to be able to wear shoes. Any advice?

  • [My pediatritian told me that babies don't need to wear shoes, so I wouldn't worry about that. Try a different pediatritian for a second opinion.
