Not need to weight-bear at that age, any asymmetry in use of extremities in an infant warrants a physical & neurological exam by her pediatrician, with referral to a pediatric neuroligist for further investigation if any abnormalities are found in muscle tone, strength or reflexes.
If there are signs of hip dysplaia, referral to a pediatric orthopedist is needed.

In brief: Dysplastic L hip

The infant has possible dysplastic l hip due to a shallow left hip socket.
. Sometimes the mother may feel a hip click when changing the infant's diaper. This condition should be ruled out by a simple l hip x ray asap..
