I am a stay-at-home mom and I also take care of my neice and nephew 5 days a week.
My neice just turned 4 and ever since she could walk she has walked on her tippy toes. She will not walk on her whole foot - though she can do it if asked, but only briefly. She has a hard time with her balance, which I'm sure is because she's always on her toes. I was wondering if anyone else knows a kid who does this and if she will grow out of it or what. Her parents are not concerned, but also do not really notice much. Example - the first 2 fingers on each hand have been crooked since birth, but mom and dad just noticed that a few months ago and just assumed she got them slammed in a door or something!!!!!!!!!
