Foot problem with my 20 months old

Question

Hi,
My daughter walks with her left foot in the inwards direction. She started to walk when she was 11 months old. We have been noticing this problem since past few months. One of the doc advised to buy good shoes, that we already did. I want to consult with an orthopedic surgeon with children. Can pediatrics see it well, i am not sure as i already consulted two.
Any suggestions for a good orthopedic surgeon for kids in brussels. Edith Cavell is close to my place, which one of the doc is good there. Please let me know if you have any feedback.
I am really worried.

Thanks for your help.

I would like to tell you that it is not necessarily a thing that will not go away naturally. My son had this problem with both feet, so much so that he would trip over himself when walking or running. He also walked early at 10 months. My doctor told me not to worry and that it would correct itself . To be honest I can't remember when exactly but it was gradual and certainly before he started school. I would suggest getting a 2nd opinion.

Go see an orthopedist. Find one in a hospital near you. Doing nothing should not be an option.
