My sons ankles seem to turn in, he is 2.5yrs.
Similar to above link. (Oh I didn't know the below pic worked too)
I have an appointment with the podiatrist this week, but I'm just wondering how common it is and what type of treatment to expect.

Toddlers feet issues

I noticed DD2's feet turning in just after she started walking. My GP checked that her hips & knees were straight, recommended a supportive shoe (like Clarks) & said to come back in 6mths if I was still concerned. He also said a well fitting, supportive shoe would be just as effective as orthodics at her age, but if it didn't improve he would refer me to a podiatrist.
I have followed his advice & at 21mths DD's feet don't turn in anymore when she walks.

When I saw a different podiatrist at the start of the year, I too bought better supportive shoes but unfortunately it hasn't improved.

Bummer! Orthodics are expensive if he needs them, good luck!

I've only recently noticed my sons feet do the same and he is just over 2, I was just thinking about it yesterday wondering if I should take him to see a podiatrist

So my dd has this quite bad. Due to her low muscle tone related to her syndrome. See pic. It can and does improve with better shoes. Hopefully the podiatrist can help.
Are you going to a pediatric podiatrist?
My dd wears AFOS. . But before that the podiatrist said to buy proper shoes.
Look for a slight incline on the sole
Proper firm heel area that you can't really squish in (not those pre walkers that are soft).
And then you can get a little orthotic/insert that will help push/roll the foot.
Plus I was told it's not abnormal for toddlers to have this and for it to slowly correct as they go from that sort of 'waddle' walk to turning their feet in.

My right foot is like this. I had an injury that never healed properly. I wear orthotics to help it. It's still terrible but it does help.
I'd take your LO to a podiatrist and see what they say.

Yes they are expensive, Dh is having another pair made for his (corrected) Club foot. $500!
