Is It Okay That My Child Walks On His Toes All The Time
Depends on age: Toe walking is seen ocassionally in normal kids and will usually disappear by 3-5yr. The cause for most is unknown.

My baby is 4 months old and likes to sit in her walker.She is now pushing it around. Is that bad will it mess up the development of her legs.
If she's in It <10%: Of her waking hours, was full-term & has typical development, probably not. You have to baby-proof your house sooner- especially re: dangling cords to hot appliances, stairs & open doors & monitor her closely. Walkers abduct the hips, not a natural position for walking. Gross (large) motor skills progress head-toe the first year, so tummy time is best for play. " crawl before you walk" is true. ...Read more

Why is my 13 year old brother so tired all day after school? The fact that he rolls a lot in his sleep is the only problem that comes to my mind.
Hard to say: At 13 he needs at least 9-10 hours of sleep /night.More if he is involved in sports/practice or studying hard. A growth spurt can also add to his sleep requirement.If he is not scheduling enough time to get sleep, this may be something you can help him fix quickly.If not, an office visit with history/exam and testing may all be needed to identify the cause. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 4yr old son won't sleep most of the time unless he is laying on the furnace register while it is on with a blanket over his head. Is there a reason?
My child is 20 months.
He always goes on the fingers of his foot. He stands on his foot only when he is standing. ?
Don't worry, but: Do watch your child for other unusual signs and ask the Dr if there are other ones. This behavior can be quite normal in children of this age, so try not to become too distressed - that can cause worse problems for all of you. It's good to care, but wise to remain calm and enjoy him as he grows. Bring it up at his next exam if he's still doing it. ...Read more
