Ask a Paediatrician Online and Get an Answer ASAP
My name is*****
I am a Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgeon and I will try and answer your questions as best as I can.
May I ask for some information please?
Was your daughter born normally, at full term?
Were there any issues during labour or after birth?
When did your daughter start walking?
Finally, Does she have any other medical problems and currently taking any medicines?
You can share the video of your daughter walking here.
Yes please share the video here.
Chatting with text message here is fine by me.
The call request is auto generated by website and not by me. Please ignore it
Yes. I have seen the video.
Can I ask at what age did she start walking?
Ok. Thank you.
Looking at her walk (gait), it just looks like it is still maturing. It doesn't look pathological. She doesn't seem to be walking on her tip toe. One of the good things in that video is that when she fell down, she was able to get up on her own without using hand support, suggesting that she has good strength in her muscles around the hip and knee.
I don't see any worrying features in her walk at the moment. Give her some time.
Every child is different, and some walk quicker than others.
Children's walk takes time to mature, usually upto 2 1/2 -3 yrs of age.
As long as she progresses with her milestones, I wouldn't worry about it
Sorry your second video link is not working.
Is she making attempts at climbing steps with support or with holding hands?
Yes. 2020 has been a hard year for everyone especially babies and new moms with regarding to socialising. No one knows what effect the lockdown is going to have on babies.
If there are gait issues persisting beyond 2 yrs of age, it may be a good idea to see your GP and get referred to a Paediatric Orthopaedic surgeon or a Developmental Paediatrician.
I am not sure about how much money the website charges you. I wouldn't think it should be that much, but If you have any concern about this, feel free to contact the customer service on the website.
Thank you so much for your rating.
