This podiatrist also stocks a huge range of kids shoes with support too which I definitely think will help as I notice a difference even when she's walking in her toddler saltwater sandals (which aren't as supportive as those pictured but naturally straighten her foot and stop her rolling them).
    Are you in Qld by any chance? Are you talking about a place called little big feet?
    Pm me as I've been there several times. If you want.
    I would still see dr or physio first. Podiatry can be super $$ and may not be worth it.

    @CluckySC
    Heres a few pics. In order to what she wears now.
    Her feet were really bad. They don't do it very much at all now. Her left foot actually is actually almost totally corrected. And I often let her run sound barefoot or just with shoes on and no orthotic.

    My DD's feet roll in. At 2 I took her to a podiatrist who said come back at 4 as they wouldn't do anything until then but to get supportive footwear. At 4 the podiatrist said she needs orthotics. The cost was huge ($500) so we went with generic ones to see if it would help and she's stopped complaining of leg pain. So most of the time she's in sneakers with her supports in

    Thank you heaps for that. I'm so glad to hear they're improving.

    DD's aren't as severe as that. This is her front and back. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1452417572.531247.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1452417595.250539.jpg

    Fingers crossed it goes smoothly this week when we go look into it

    That's positive 👍🏼 My eldest son's roll in slightly but as long as he has shoes with a bit of arch support he's fine.

    She might just need to some arch supports. .. looks a bit like her arch need something extra.
    hopefully you'll get some answers from the podiatrist this week.

    I was told is not painful or anything. It's just what they get used to. Also was told is quite normal for toddlers to roll a little bit in too...until they build strength.
    Keep us posted.

    @CluckySC my dd2 had similar feet and the podiatrist just recommended supportive footwear. Now at 3yo she is just fine.

    We were also told lots of barefoot play in the sand and grass. But supportive footwear on concrete and hard floors.
