Or maybe this is what's called "pigeon toed" ? My son has been walking this way, with feet pointing slightly toward each other, for a few months now..or that's how long i've noticed. he has mostly been barefoot or wearing soft shoes like robeez. he was crawling by 6 months and walking before 10 months.
he was born at home, natural birth, still breastfeeding, and in every way seems to be doing great. I dont get why he is walking like this. but otherwise he is very agile, dances beautifully, climbs really well, etc. but after reading the book i'm a little concerned and mostly just curious.
h'es always barefoot indoors (lots of hardwood floors with room rugs), and much of the time he was outdoors till it got cold here recently. he was mostly on grass running around barefoot but sometimes on pavement. and was either barefoot or wearing those soft soled shoes (i just felt he could be more agile in them).
both my husband and i have good arches and walk with our feet pointed slightly outward. So..I am surprised that my son walks with pigeon toes.
Any idea what could have caused it? could it be because he's been barefoot or wearing soft soled shoes so much?
is this something to be concerned about? if so, how can we help him? i may post a pic of his stance if that helps.
