In brief: They shouldn't

The vast majority of babies who have bowed legs are normal.
Their knees will straighten out as they grow. However, babies should be evaluated by a physician. There are a small number of children who have growth or nutritional deficiencies that need to be treated with nutritional supplements or surgery.
