Probably something with her hips. I know that that is one worry with breach babies, not sure what about them but they worry about their hips

Hips is what I was thinking, too. Perhaps they are displaced? Sometimes if hips are out of place there's a special cast babies have to wear for a while.
Hope everything turns out well!!

an xray or an ultrasound?
Girls who were breech at birth are at the highest (but still quite low) risk for hip dysplasia. In general, we get ultrasounds on any breech baby that has a hip click or clunk on exam (where the doctor holds the legs at the knee and pressed gently down, then rotates the leg outwards).
Most of the time it's fine. If there IS some degree of hip dysplasia, most orthos use something called a pavlik harness to correct it. It's kind of a pain to use, but doesnt hurt anybody.
Hope everything turns out ok. Please kup.
