My daughter's pediatrician said it is normal in small children, and it usually corrects itself. However, my daughter turned out to be pigeoned toed and her foot still turns in at 12. She can control it and keep her foot straight when she thinks about it. The orthopedic we saw said that wearing supportive shoes, such as tennies instead of sandals and flip flops, and walking would help, and it has some. I would say if it still happens by school age and it worries you, see and orthodpedic.

I have noticed over the last few months that my 5 year old daughter walks with her right foot inwards. Am concerned as I've not seen this before in any of my other children. She says it doesn't hurt, but as a mum, I am worried, and would like to know if there is anything I should think or do about this.



It is noticable, and you can see that her shoes does not match with the other shoe on her left.

As a child I had the same thing. It never corrected itself and by the time I was 5 my pediatrician wanted to put me in leg braces. But my mom refused. My foot still turns in, but its not a big deal at all. I can walk perfectly fine, and it never hurts or anything!

Check with your pedi next time you visit, she could have some minor clubbing of the foot which an be corrected with exercises.

The same thing happend with my son. My pediatrician said as he got older it would correct itself. It has a bit. Even the specialist said it was not bad and it was best to wait to see what it did in time. Also depends on severity. Good luck.

Some times it turns in a little but ask your pediatrician next visit and he/she will look at it.
