Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Legs that appear crooked in children under 18 months do not always indicate a serious condition. This is in many cases due to their tendency to bend while in the uterus. As people age and develop, often the bent leg disappears by the age of three. And at the age of 7-8 years, the child already has a leg shape that lasts into adulthood.

Although it can be said to be normal, crooked legs can be a sign of serious problems, including crooked legs in children over 3 years of age caused by:

Rickets or vitamin D deficiency. Broken bones or a history of fractures. Rickets Disease. Brain paralysis Disorders of bone development

Which of course, in order to differentiate it from a normal crooked leg, other conditions usually have other accompanying symptoms such as developmental delays in language and social forms. To avoid misunderstandings, and to confirm whether your child's curvature is still in the normal criteria or not, we suggest that you consult your child's problem with a pediatrician. Your pediatrician will then try to detect based on your child's history while still in the womb and during the 2 months of birth, whether there is a tendency towards other diseases. And there may be a supporting examination in the form of X-rays of the feet if in doubt.

Meanwhile, keep breastfeeding according to your baby's needs, and pay attention if your baby has other symptoms to tell the doctor at the next examination. For footwear, it's best to use socks and shoes of the right size, not too big or small, use cotton socks and use shoes made of cotton, canvas or leather. We wish you and your family good health.

That's all, hope it helps.
