From nine to twelve months of age, your baby will become increasingly mobile, a development that will thrill and challenge parents. Being able to move from place to place will give your child a delicious sense of power and control—his first real taste of physical independence.
Your child’s feet also may look a little odd to you. When he lies on his back, his toes may turn inward so that he appears pigeon-toed. This common condition usually disappears by eighteen months. It marks the beginning of being ambulatory and a whole new world for your new toddler.
