  • Well my kids' legs and ankles click too. Wierd. Lol But having not seen the foot ,I say DR. They will prolly say take her shoe shopping where they have supportive and corrective shoes. But I say Dr. As it may not be foot, if her leg is giving out , could be ankle or bone growth, Is she tall , short, bones seem to be growing ok?

  • I agree - check with your pediatrician. At least once it's brought to the doctor's attention, you will feel better about it. If it continues or gets worse, make sure the doctor knows that too. Good luck !!

  • DD is 2 and has the exact same thing, minus the clicking. The dr said its totally normal and will eventually correct itself. Its because she was cramped up inside the womb. She said lots of parents bring their kids in fearing the dr will have to do surgery but that its not necessary. I noticed it actually the day she was born that her foot curved inwards. It has gotten better with age. Almost completely gone. She fell a lot when she began walking.

  • i had that problem when i was small. the shoes are straight instead of curved. i remember wearing them. not sure where to get them though. i don't know about the leg giving out or anything. good luck.
