Babies feet are different to ours. They don't have bones yet‚ just soft cartilage, and there is no visible arch.

The cartilage is simply surrounded by a fleshy pad and it can easily be moulded into the wrong shape if it's constricted. Even tight socks can damage the foot at this age.

You may have seen lots of cute baby shoes, but don't be tempted yet. Barefoot is best at this stage.

You'll notice some very rapid developments at this stage. Your child will grow strong enough to support their own head‚ and they will learn to roll over and sit on their own. They are getting ready to start moving around.
