Re: Children's feet and hardwood floors

The short answer is probably not. If your child has some pathological foot condition, then maybe.

At 18 months, children have not established a heel-toe gait pattern and actually walk better barefoot. Their joints are not so worn out as an adult's.

You should judge by how your child seems to act. If their feet hurt, they'll let you know.
