Your Baby’s Feet
Both the size and shape of your child’s feet change quickly during the first year of life. Because a baby’s feet are flexible, too much pressure or strain can affect the shape of the foot. To help ensure normal growth, allow your baby to kick and stretch his or her feet. Also, make sure shoes and socks don’t squeeze toes.
Talk with the doctor if you are concerned about your baby’s feet. Many infants have feet that appear to turn in. The shape of the foot changes as your child grows. Your child’s doctor may suggest a gentle stretching exercise to aid proper development.
