Q.

Toe walking toddler

Please I just need to know if it is normal or not, I have a fifteen month old grandson who toe walks all the time, it is so cute but I’ m starting to worry that he is going to get used to walking like that all the time. Please let me know what to do or not to do. Thanking you Shereen.

Paediatrician

Toe walking is very common in babies who are just starting to walk. It usually disappears as a problem well before the age of 2 years. If he is still toe walking at 2 years he will need to be seen by his paediatrician.
