14 months baby girl walks with left leg inwards frequently. Is this normal ?

Hi Doctor , We noticed our daughter who is 14 months old, when she walks keeps mostly she keeps her left toe inwards. I am deeply worried and couldn t even concentrate on my work. Is this because of Vitamin D deficiency as for the past 6-7 months rarely we used go be exposed to sunlight due to the climatic conditions which is extreme cold or any other reasons. Can this be rectified by doing any exercises or any treatment. Will my baby be fine in future. Please suggest your valuable views, Thanks

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum
Relax! It is normal to have that gait at the initial stages of walking as they try to balance the body while walking, there does not appear any deformity. For you to stop worrying please do consult an orthopedician.
Take care

Hi Doctor Naveen,

Thanks a lot for your advise, a small correction in the sentence that i mentioned above. It's not her toe but her left foot that she frequently keeps inwards while walking and we notice that her left lower leg (below thigh) looks a little bend compared to right leg. Please suggest..

Thanks & Regards
