  • my boy walked late as well but didn't have the problem, ask your doctor next time you see him and also get a 2nd opinion. Something like that is serious.

  • It wouldn't hurt to ask a professional, but a lot of kids have odd ways of walking when they're that young. My daughter was pigeon-toed, but she grew out of it.
