Well, I was planning on posting about some sitting pages that are almost ready but I received 6 emails requestiong some activities for toddlers. I just posted a sample of an upcoming release of games and activities that will be available soon. Click on the HERE for some great ideas!
Yes AND no.
Your baby is moving and learning and experimenting with a lot of muscles. When your child first walks, his/her steps and foot positions can change almost daily. If he/ she stays on his/her toes at this stage, get them evaluated to rule out sensory disorders and/or muscle imbalances. More than likely, he/she will settle into a flat foot position but there are activities to improve this that a therapist can help you with.
If your baby has been walking for a few months and begins to tip toe walk, it is possible that he/she is practicing a new skill (which is an appropriate skill at that time). Watch to make sure it is not all of the time or getting worse. This would be a concern to ask for an evaluation by a therapist.
