outdated advice

 

There are more outdated pieces of advice that we want to refute. These are the ones referred to the feet, legs, and first steps of the baby. Probably you have heard something similar to these sometimes:

 

— Letting your little one stand or bounce in your lap can cause that their legs bow in the future. Truth is that the baby become bowlegged is a scary history.

 

Younger babies are learning how to bear weight on their legs and find their center of gravity, so let your child stand or bounce is a funny way to be stimulated.

 

— When the babies begin to walk need hard-soled shoes to protect their delicate toes and keep their feet properly aligned.

 

The truth is that babies use their toes to grip the surfaces they are walking on, so indoors, they actually must go shoeless indoors. To keep tiny tootsies safe outside, get a shoe with a good grip on the sole.
