Toddler Flat Feet: Symptoms, Causes, and Management of Baby Flat Feet
Flat feet (or pes planus) in toddlers means exactly what the name implies — their feet are flatter on the bottom, allowing the entire sole of the foot to touch the floor when standing. Flat feet are entirely normal in babies and toddlers, primarily because the arches in their feet haven't fully developed. The anatomy, physiology and biomechanics of the baby's skeleton are different when compared to adults. Children's bones and joints are flexible, which causes their feet to flatten when they stand.
