“The most important thing for parents to realize,” says Kevin Bryant, DPM, of Progressive Podiatry, LLC, “is that they need to understand what is normal in order to be able to recognize what is abnormal.” Whether Baby starts walking at 9 or 14 months, parents will want to keep an eye on his gait as well as his feet. “Toe walking is very, very common in kids,” says Dr. Bryant, adding that kids who walk up on their toes typically stop around age 4 or 5. Some kids will walk on their tip-toes because of a neurological or physiological condition — for example, the muscles on their backs of their legs may actually contract the tendons in their ankles, forcing them to walk on their toes. Bryant says that most kids just think that’s the way to walk, and a little retraining with physical therapy resolves the issue.

Flat feet is another common problem, according to Bryant, and usually requires a visit to a specialist if your little one is in pain, or can’t seem to keep up with other kids while walking or running around. An orthotic insert, which today can be customized from advanced, lightweight materials, can help.
