Baby standing on inside of feet?
Hi! My son is a 1.5 shy of 11 months - as of about a week or so, he's stared to really get into pulling up and stating to try and climb the stairs. Stands with assistance too and likes to walk/step when I'm holding his hands behind him. However, I noticed when he stands, he out toes a bit (not as bad as when he first started to stand at 7-7.5 months) but not he seems to stand on the inside of his feet - he stands and then the outside of his feet don't touch - it looks like over pronation basicaly. He's alert, active and strong, but I wonder why he does this. When he walks with assistance, I don't really see this happen - just with standing. Since he is not walking yet, I wonder what I am to do about it - do I need high top shoes already to re-inforce the ankle? Am I supposed to let him go like this until a few months after he starts walking on his own, or is this going to hinder him from walking? I have attached a picture. First time mom here, so naturally I wonder what the best approach should be.
