  • babies feet aren't developed yet to support their full weight. Babies first strengthen their foot muscles through putting pressure on their toes and the ball of their foot.

    at least, thats what I think. They won't be able to manouver around as well on flat feet because they don't know how to use their foot with their full body weight being put on it.

  • I've never heard that. And I never cared either way.

  • b/c if it's flat on the floor they are not going to jump, only the tip of their toes should be touching the floor so they can jump higher without hitting the floor hard.
