Walking usually begins between the ages of 10 to 24 months of age.
Each child is unique in their walking development and if you are worried, contact our podiatry pediatric Sydney clinic at (02) 9922 3771 or make an appointment online.
The usual sequence is lying to sitting, crawling, standing, cruising, walking, running and then hopping. However it is not always in this sequence.
Some children walk with their toes pointing inwards (in-toeing) and some outwards (out-toeing), others walk on their toes (toe-walking). If you are concerned about your child demonstrating these activities then contact our pediatric foot doctor Sydney and make an appointment.
When your bubba begins to walk, shoes are not necessary inside the house.
Allowing babies to walk barefoot or just socks, helps the foot to grow normally and allows the natural grasping action of toes on the floor.
