  • I have no idea but I think the first step in figuring it out would be talking to her pediatrician.

  • You can try to massage her legs like move her legs towards outward that way as time goes by her legs will face forward...GL
    Her legs and muscles are still soft so as you slowly train them they will be straight.

  • She needs to see a pediatrician or a podiatrist, it can be corrected.

  • The opposite sneaker idea is an old one. Talk to your pediatrician.

  • Put her shoes on the wrong feet and as she grows it will help straighten them out. Also talk to your doctor to see what other things you can do

  • My DD is pigeon toed she is 3 yrs old i took her to her Dr for a check up and now she is in physical therapy cause she has low muscle tone that's the reason she is pigeon toed. I would ask her Dr.

  • You need to take her to a doctor! Do not try any home remedies, you can make it worse and hurt her, Shoes on backwards is insane and so is the shoes on the wrong feet. Go see a professional.

  • Oh my son was pigeon-toed as well! And bow-legged, haha, poor thing ;-). I asked the pediatrician at his 18 month well-baby check. She watched him run, and felt his hips and legs. She said he'd grow out of it - and he did, in the month following. So yes - check with you pediatrician before trying anything at home. (I had heard about the opposite shoe trick, too, but to do it only if prescribed by the doc!)
