Look who's almost walking
It's normal for baby's feet to look flat and turned out and his legs bowed when he starts to take steps, but talk to your doctor if you feel like something's not right. No need to worry about shoes just yet — walking barefoot actually helps strengthen the muscles he needs.
[tip] Before naps or bed and after lunch or a bath are all great times to read to baby — when he's relaxed, he's better able to engage.
