Most people walk with their toes and feet pointing straight ahead. Some children's feet turn in when they walk. This can be called intoeing or being pigeon-toed. There are many reasons why a child may walk with their feet pointing in, but most cases are corrected on their own as the child grows up. This is why there aren't many pigeon-toed adults.
Babies regularly have their feet, legs and hips checked by their doctor in hospital, or at maternal and child-health nurse visits. As children grow, parents are often concerned about their feet pointing inwards when they walk (also called in-toe or pigeon-toed walking) or outwards (also called out-toe walking or duck-footed).
