My daughter is 20 mths old. When I try to pick her up she will start crying in pain and stiffen her legs. She doesnt want to wrap her legs around me like she normally does. When I lie her down to change her diaper. She arches her back and stiffens her legs. She doesnt want me to bend her legs. She also seems to have pain if you touch her bottom. She doesnt have a diaper rash. I thought that possibly she had fell down on a toy or something and hurt her bottom but, she doesnt have any bruising. She acts fine any other time. She runs around playing and acting normally. Has anyone else experienced this with their child?
