I have a couple points of discussion and I don’t know if anyone will answer, but there seems to be at least 3 posters with infants or toddlers who might provide insight on these points.
Toe-Walking infants and toddlers :
What exactly is toe-walking and why is it bad?
What causes toe-walking?
Does it hurt future athletic performance?
Barefoot walking infants and toddlers:
Does walking barefoot as an infant and toddler promote good motor development and proper motor control?
Does barefoot walking cause toe-walking?
Clothing on an infant or toddler:
Does demin and other coarse and hard clothing restrict, impair, or otherwise hurt motor development in infants, toddler, and young children?
Does it hurt the infants ability to walk or crawl?
Does it hurt the infants ability to coordinate movements later on?
