Your little one is learning to walk and you notice that the legs do not look straight when your child walks. Most first time parents get concerned and wonder if their child has a deformity or a condition. However bowlegs are very common in new walker and will go away with time.

What you need to know
As children start walking they tend to bend their knees to support their weight and balance. As they continue to practice waking, their legs will learn to bear the weight and will straighten up on its own. There is no need to stress about bowlegs unless the condition looks extreme or there is uneven bending in the two legs, in which case you need to consult your pediatrician.
