my DS is 6 months old, we had a couple friends over around 3 months ago, I've thought about it a few times even my 62 year old mother doesn't know where she got it from, but this 45 year old women told me i need to get my son shoes, that go all the way up his legs to prevent him from being bow legged. I just shrugged it off, anyone else ever heard of this? I try not to put shoes on my DS because i heard only soft shoes till they've got walking down.

eh i haven't seen her since, so i didn't worry about it, She offered to take me to go get them.. I just kinda went along with her plan and i've been too busy since. I was just curious where in the world she got this bull from or if they really believed this back in the day.

Iv heard sturdy shoes to the ankle to stabilize the ankle while walking but nothing to stop bow leggedness

Didn't plan on it, just curious, I never see it come up in old , stupid parent advice threads.
