My 2 1/2 year old son walks with his feet and lower legs turned in, he's not tripping over them anymore and I had mentioned this to our doctor and he wasn't concerned and said it will probably correct itself. That was 6 months ago and I'm really worried that he could have another condition possibly cerebral palsy as I was reading about it. The only symptoms he has is his walking and he also has stabismus which many kids with cerebral palsy have but stabismus is very common in kids and it does run in our family. He can stand with his feet straight although not all the time, he is also very active, he has hit all his developmental milestones on time, he can talk very well and doesn't seem mentally challenged in any way. For the most part he is a very normal child. His preschool teachers had noticed that when he walks up the stairs his legs look like they twist and that he also falls a lot, he doesn't fall much here at home. My husband walked with his feet turned in as a child and they still turn in a little and his mother has feet that are severely turned in as well. My son can climb, run and do everything like a normal child but I was wondering if there could possibly be something else wrong with him. He was a big baby weighing 10 lbs 11 oz at birth and I'm very small so I'm wondering if maybe it could also be because he was so cramped in the womb and maybe that has something to do with it. Does anyone else have a child where their feet seem to be severely turned in? I am very concerned.
