Yes in most cases this very normal. My daughter has problems with her hips, the bones are fine, but the ball on herhip bone is smaller than the socket so her feet also turn in. She is six now and she has always been followed by an Orthopedic Surgeon. It has only been in the last month hat she has to have special shoes and braces put on her legs. This is still only because she falls all the time and he wants to try to give her more stability to keep her from getting hurt. I hope this helps to make you more at ease.

Yes he's been walking since he was about 8.5 mths!! I've been reading also but i haven't come across anything why his feet would go inwards :(

Is he walking yet? The bowed legs are normal because of how they sit in the womb. It should start to correct itself after he's been walking for a while. I've researched this quite a bit because I had a strong negative reaction when I noticed my daughter was bowlegged. As far as the turned in feet, you should check with your doctor. Depending on the severity of the condition he may need a special pair of shoes that have a bar connecting the shoes together to force his feet outward. Hope this helps. Good luck!
