When a child is pigeon-toed

In-Toeing or also called Pigeon Toeing is when the feet turn inward instead of being straight. This can be a normal part of development even up to the age of fifteen months when babies are just learning how to walk. In Toeing maybe a problem if your child is older and having problems like tripping when they're walking or having trouble running or playing sports. If that were the case, your doctor might refer you to an Orthopedic Surgeon for further evaluation.
