Children's Feet Health
At birth the bones in our feet are soft and have not yet fully formed. It will take up until we are in our mid-late teens before the foot bones are fully developed and have ‘hardened’ (also known as ‘ossified’). The development of a child’s foot is aligned with the stages of functional development – from learning to crawl, starting to walk as a baby/toddler to walking in an adult manner. Therefore it is very important that your child’s feet are protected by the right size of baby-grow, socks and shoes as they go through each stage.
