Your children's foot health is a vital part of their health and well-being.

From proper children's shoe buying and shoe lacing, to the signs and symptoms of intoeing or outtoeing, your children's foot health will be strides ahead with this helpful information from AOFAS.

  • Clubfoot - One of the most common nonmajor birth defects. Clubfoot affects your child's foot and ankle, twising the heel and toes inward.
  • Intoeing - Sometimes called "pigeon toes," commonly outgrown before 2nd birthday.
  • Outtoeing - When an infant's feet bend inward from middle of the feet to the toe

Kid's feet sure do grow

Children's feet grow fast so check their shoes regularly to see if they are getting snug. The younger the child, the faster his feet will grow. Early on, expect to buy a new pair at least every 2 to 3 months. By the time the child is 3 years old, the intervals may stretch to 6 months. One sign that a toddler's shoes may be getting too tight is if he frequently takes them off or if they cause him to trip.
