Bowed legs and Inward toe in toddler

My 15 month old has pretty bowed legs and inward toe. Dr says she doesn't need braces and will grow out of it. If any of your toddlers have had this, did they grow out of it?

Hi and thank you for posting!

I don't have any personal experience with bowed legs or inward toes, but hopefully this article on foot and leg problems in babies , which addresses both, will put your mind at ease. It says that both problems are common concerns among parents and usually resolve themselves without intervention in the toddler years (bowed legs by age 2 according to the article). If after this point, your daughter is still experiencing these problems, I would consult your doctor again about appropriate treatments.

Best wishes,
Atti
