    Default Kids are crazy..

    My baby girl, Aysia, turns 1 this coming Sunday. We are having a problem with her standing. She tilts her foot inward so she is standing on her ankle, not her foot. Hard shoes are starting to help, but does anyone else have a suggestion? We will be taking her to the doctor's soon.

    This is called in-toeing. Most toddlers toe-in or -out because of a slight rotation, or twist, of the upper or lower leg bones. Most little ones grow out of this as they learn to walk because the muscles strengthen and straighten naturally. In-toeing can also be caused by metatarsus adductus, which is a curvature of the foot that causes toes to point inward. Generally speaking you can look for this yourself when you look at the soles of your baby's feet. They will curve toward each other like two half-moons. Don't worry about this either, most kids grow out of this naturally during their toddler years.

    Basically, put some decent shoes on her, not wally-world or payless shoes and hold her hands while she walks to get used to having the pressure on her feet and feeling them- and of course, check with your pediatrician to see if there are any underlying issues.

    She is starting to try and corret herself when she stands, but its just freaky to look at when she first stands up. We try to always correct it when we see it and she looks at her feet when we do. Also, we tell her what we are doing and why so she might try to correct it herself more often. Currently, we only have Walmart shoes on her feet just to get her used to shoes and have a hard sole. We hope to go to Stride Rite soon to get the better shoes.

    Children are always crazy. My son has always let us worry. Believe that everything will be all right.

    It seems to be slowly getting better. She is even trying to stand unassisted now. She should be walking by summertime, I think. Just in time for cute little summer dresses to toddle in!!

    Just wondering, what did the doctor say? did you consider taking her to a podiatrist? this is the time to have the problems fixed, not when she gets older and the bones get set.
