Re: walking

  • I don't think it would hurt to get it looked for your peace of mind.  FWIW my son did the same thing/had same problem.  He would even drag his left leg a little bit when he would be pushing his walking toy. He walked the the push toy for a long time.  I mentioned it to the doctor around 8 or 10 months.  She said she wanted to give it a couple more months.  By his 12 month appt he was walking like a pro.  His leg does still bow but he has no issues walking.  Apparantly bow legs and pigeon feet are not at all uncommon.
