The problem you are facing is not uncommon. I am happy that you kid is already under care of a paediatrician. It is normal for babies to have bowed legs till 5 years of age. However, as you have already identified Vitamin D deficiency, it is prudent to replenish any deficient vitamin or mineral. I do not feel that you need to consult any orthopedician. What I would advise you to do is to discuss your concerns with your paediatrician in detail, next time you visit.
