Recently my son hurt his foot on the slide with me at the park. We went to the emergency room where they took X-rays and found nothing. A couple days later he still isn't walking we went back for a checkup and she sent us for more X-rays of his whole side this time and still found nothing. It has been a whole week since he has walked all he wants us to do is hold him or he crawls everywhere. I don't know if its something in his head keeping him from walking again or what. How do I get my son to walk again? Any advice?

It sounds crazy but take him to a pediatric podiatrist. I had a friend who's son was hurt while at daycare and was doing the same thing. Urgent care said he was fine, her doctor didn't see anything but because he wouldn't walk sent her immediatley to a podiatrist. Come to find out his foot was fractured. When it comes to our kids you can never be too protective. Your doctor will most likely have to refer you to the podiatrist since theyare specialist- but demand a second opinion!!
