Pigeon toes in 3 jarige

My dogter het sopas 3 geword, en ek het haar regtervoetjie dopgehou vanaf haar loopstadium. Daar is 'n neiging van die voetjie om in te draai as sy loop, wat soms tot lompheid kan lei. My pediater het voorgestel dat ek wag tot op 3 jaar, en dan weer daaraan aandag gee. Sou ek dan na 'n pediater, ortopeet of voetdeskundige moet gaan vir die beste advies?

You need to take her to paediatric orthopedic surgeon for an assessment
The rotation can be in the hip in the long bones of the thigh or the lower leg or in the foot itself
Ask te paed for a referral to someone like I have just mentioned
