Q.

Tippy Toe

Hi Doc

Me again with the 3 todlers. Ever since my 1 twin daughter started walking (at around 13months) she walks on her toes.
Her sister also walked on her toes but now walks normally.
They are 20months old . Should I be worried? (The in laws are worried)

Thanx for all the previus advise.

Many children walk on their toes and,as you found with your older child, children usually stop doing this by themselves. If your twins are still toe walking by the age of 2 years they should be seen by a physiotherapist.
