My little girl is one years old. Started around 8 months. When she walks her feet turn inwards. At first she used to trip over her feet but now she manages not to anymore. I've sought out various methods to get her to correct her feet, from adding more calcium (soy and rice milk) to her diet, massaging her legs and ankles, Vitamin C tablets, light weight / flexible shoes from Stride Rite, and barefoot walking. But everyday someone points out how "bow-legged" she is and how I should take her to a doctor to get braces put on or have them break her legs to correct them.
My thing is, everyday she seems to get better, she not that bad. I read somewhere that toddlers that start off bow-legged usually grow out of it by 3 yrs old, and if not, then that's when a parent should worry and consult a doctor for more evasive correcting.
What should I do?? Has anyone had experience with a bow-legged baby? HELP!! lol
