Like most parts of a newborn’s body, your infant’s feet are undeveloped at her time of birth. As she grows and learns to walk, the soft, pliable tissue that structures her feet will solidify into bony tissue in a process known as ossification. Her feet will continue to grow and develop well into her late teens.
You can help your child’s feet to develop as naturally as possible by choosing the right footwear and providing her with plenty of opportunity to exercise.
