my toddler is 3 yrs old but still does not alternate feet while climbing up and down the stairs. Is it a cause for concern n should I meet a physical therapist.;

Children; do climb up and down; like that.; My daughter is 5 years old there are times she still walks on her toes.

Hi Keshika ..It's not at all a matter of concern
My daughter also doesn't do that....She is 3 1/2 years old
Don't worry...Kids have to be given their time ..Don't push her
Ya u can make it fun for her...Sing put ur left leg up now put ur right leg up..I do that..Mu daughter smiles n then herself says left right

Try few activities with her like climbing or simply stomping.. Is she responds to instruction then I feel it's just matter of time she will start climbing stairs.

Dear Keshika, I would recommend consulting an Occupational Therapist. Hope this helps!

Malika Mehta thankyou. Neha Agarwal can you guide me to someone who would know of an occupational therapist in thane or Mulund?
