Baby Shoes!

Wondering when to get your little one his first pair of shoes? Experts recommend putting shoes on little feet as soon as the toddler can walk on his own. When purchasing the first pair of shoes, keep in mind these tips: soles should be flat to aid in balance, soft soled allow for flexibility and comfort, and have traction to limit slips and falls. One popular brand locally-made, Robeez, was actually designed by a young mother herself. These shoes come in many fun colors and designs! Keep in mind that barefoot time is still needed, since little feet must have the time to grow naturally and not be confined by shoes. And the muscles of the foot can actually gain more strength without the aid of a shoe! Nothing beats the feeling of running through cool grass on a summer day!

Baby Shoes!

Wondering when to put the first pair of shoes on your toddler? Most experts recommend around the time your little one starts to walk on his own. Shoes can protect little feet from all sorts of hazards such as germs, sharp objects or stubbing toes. When looking for the first pair of shoes, keep in mind that soles should be flat to aid in balance, soft soled to maintain flexibility and comfort for the foot, and soles should have traction so slipping is limited. Robeez shoes are quite popular for babies, and were designed by a young mother herself, and are also made locally in Vancouver. Despite warnings, going barefoot is still appropriate around the home so that the foot can grow naturally without the confinement of a shoe. Going barefoot also allows the muscles of the foot to gain strength faster than with a shoe.

Baby Shoes

Wondering about when to put the first pair of shoes on your toddler's feet? The simple answer is when your toddler begins to walk. Shoes will protect your child's feet from many hurts and germs as he begins to cover more ground. When selecting the first pair of shoes, keep in mind a few key points: shoes should be flat to aid in balance, soft soled for comfort and flexibility and have some sort of traction to limit slips and slides as baby learns to walk. Going barefoot is still recommended around home since this allows the foot muscles to develop and the foot to grow naturally without confinement. Robeez are a popular brand of infant shoes which were designed by a young Canadian mother and are even made locally in Vancouver.
