  • I don't know why, and my DD doesn't do this, but I've seen a lot of babies that do that. My niece did it when she was little.

  • I don't know why he's doing that but I too wonder the same thing because my daughter also does that. She only does it when she's bare foot in the house. I guess it because her feet are cold but she doesn't want to wear socks.

  • My daughter does that when she dances. She's been doing it for easily a month now... and it started right after her "walking backwards" stage! She only does it when we watch something with people dancing and she pretends to be a "ballerina"... otherwise, I have NO idea! My dd is 21 mos.

  • Our FS did that, too. I agree with hibbingmom, it's a balance thing, and they can get where they are going FAST. Also, it fhe concrete outside is hot or cold, he does it still.

  • When my sister was little we used to call her "tippy toe Mo"!! she always walked like that. She did grow out of it though! I am not sure why kids do this, but maybe it is just fun!

  • I have always been told if they do that to put shoes on them and they'll quit doing it. My daughter never did that though. I guess the shoes help them learn the right way to walk though I dont know that it is much a problem anyway and they do outgrow it.
