Taking their first steps. Children’s feet are different to adult feet and will take a few years to fully develop. However, it’s important that you take note of how your children’s feet are developing and whether or not they are experiencing any difficulties when walking.
Children start to walk at different times – some as young as eight months, while others won’t begin until they are 18 months of age.
Common problems children experience
Does your child:
- Have flat feet?
- Suffer from in-toeing or out-toeing?
- Walk on their toes?
- Trip over when walking or running?
- Experience pain while walking?
- Have toes that cross over?
- Suffer from warts?
