has anyone else noticed if their kids feet roll inwards, when they first start to pull themselves up to standing position? as our little boy does 11months.. not sure if this is normal?

My little boy is 13mths and his feet do the same thing. I go to physio and they have said it is pretty common. It is the start of having flat feet. They advised me to get him wearing firm shoes that have an arch in them and to get him using his feet more. They also said they usually grow out of it by the time they are two years old and walking properly.
If they dont grow out of it, they usually just put orthodics on their shoes.
Not really anything to worry about

my daughter is 17 months and her feet roll inwards. i saw the doctor last week and he isn't concerned as babies are very flexible. The paediatrician will only be concerned if it continues beyond her third birthday. the only thing he sugested was to encourage her to stand on her toes every now and then. This will help her with balance and to help an arch form in her foot.

Yep, normal . It's because the muscles that support the arch aren't fully developed yet. Baby fat in that particular area also makes the foot appear flat and the anles to look as if they are slightly rolling inwards. I wouldn't worry until about 3 yrs, when most kids have grown out of it. Even if flat-footedness runs in the family most doctors and foot specialists won't treat it until then or even later. But have it checked out if it is worrying you HTH
