The Childs Foot
The human foot is a complex structure of 26 bones which begin as soft cartilage and are fully mature by the age of 18. This means a baby’s foot is very pliable and abnormal pressures can easily cause the foot to deform. Children’s feet also grow quite rapidly during the first year, reaching almost half their adult foot size. So this time is very important in the development of your child’s feet and regular checkups are advised to eliminate any issues early on.
