Bow Leg

Back home I remember when those old people, our grandmother, mother and friends who had kids used to say to massage the baby's leg so they won't grow up bowlegged. And when Jake was born, my sister also told me to massage his leg every morning for the same reason lol. Well, I didn't follow this thing that much; although there were few times I massaged his legs while playing with him same thing with Justine right now. Until I read this bowlegged thing online and thought of sharing it to the mothers who are also wondering why does baby look bowlegged? The answer is;

*** Your baby owes his curved legs to all the time he spent curled up in your uterus. The older he gets, though, the more his legs will unfurl. When your baby starts walking, anywhere between about 9 and 17 months, the weight he puts on his leg bones will cause them to slowly change shape, and within six months or so from then, his legs will have straightened out considerably. "It's something the body usually just takes care of on its own," says pediatrician Laura Jana of Omaha, Nebraska. "In most cases, there's no need to worry or take corrective action, but it's always a good idea to have your baby's legs checked at each well-baby visit. If your child is still bowlegged at age 2, you'll want to consider further evaluation."
