My baby is very flexible and has always pulled her feet up to a position common to breech babies. She loves her jumperoo. She has built up slot of leg strength jumping around. My concern is that when she is jumping she pushed off with the edge of her foot instead of keeping her feet flat. Stand up and turn you feet so that you are standing on the outside edge of your foot causing your legs to bow. This is how she is jumping. I worry that this is a bad posture and will only reinforce any unnatural curvature to her legs. I plan to ask her pediatrician about this next week. ANyone else seeing this with their baby?

my daughter puts her feet fully down when she is in her door bouncer. but her calves look like they are slightly bent but i think she will grow out of it. no health visitor have mentioned any conserns over her legs. after she was born she would face her feet inwards alot. i was told to massage her ankels every day to stop her doing this. i was told she probably does it because when she was in my belly there wasnt alot of room and thats how she was comfy.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
