probably nothing to worry about. Children of this age are growing everyday and have to adjust their perception almost daily leading to the clumsyness you are seeing. My 5 year old did it and is now great and my daughter is 21mnths and also being clumsy. If you are still concerned go and see your doctor.

I wouldn't be too worried. My son is 21 months as well and the last few weeks he has been more clumsy than normal, falling all the time, but I think it's because he's growing. He's gained more than a pound over the last couple of weeks and is taller too so your daughter may be in the same boat. If it keeps up and you're still concerned a call to her doc may ease your mind.

I would say that she is a normal toddler. My son crashes and bashes into everything, falls over, bumps his head and scrapes his knees. It looks like I bash him up some times but all the kids I know are the same. They seem to have no fear. I just think I can't wrap him up in cotton wool. I let him have fun and if he falls over I brush him off and he keeps on playing.

As Angel said if your really worried then you can always talk to your doctor but I would say that she is perfectly fine :)

Clumsy how? Just tripping and bumping into things?? If you are concerned, you could get her eyes checked out, not sure what they do, but that may be an issue, you never know. OR it could be that's just how she is. Have you talked to your Dr. about it??
