    If he has one leg (or both) that are at funny angles he
    probably has splayed legs. If you catch this early it is
    fixable. I posted a link below, but I have not read the whole
    page so I would do a search for splayed legs and read up on
    it. This post is just to get you started. There are some
    diagrams that show you what it looks like. I believe he will
    have to be handfed to fix the problem unless you have very
    cooperative parents, I could be wrong though as I've never
    dealth with this problem. I wish you and the little one all
    the luck.
