Bow legs? MunchkinWrangler 4 kids; Rīga, Latvia 46847 posts

My 14 month old's legs are kind of bowed.
He walks almost like he's sitting in a saddle... if that makes any sense.
It doesn't effect him at all.



At what age should I bring this up to his doctor?
I know bowed legs are something that generally correct themselves as baby grows and starts becoming more and more mobile in toddler-hood... but at what point is it a concern?

At 2 years I was told. Years ago DD1 had the same issue and around 18 months I took her to a specialist and they told me she should grow out of it. If by 2 years they were still that way, then they'd start treatment. She grew out of it.

Why do bow legs need treatment? I have slight bowed legs, have my whole life.
