Choosing Your Baby’s First Shoes

I found myself completely flummoxed by baby shoes. When exactly should they start wearing them? And how do you know they’re the right size, and not crushing their little toes? I worried about Ivo getting cold feet in the winter, but I’d read that they learn how to walk best without wearing socks or shoes. Argh!! In the end, we kept him shoe-less {but not sock-less} for as long as possible, and then my sister bought him these gorgeous giraffe ShooShoos pram shoes for when he ventures outside, and is likely to be standing or sofa-surfing in a cafe. We’ve also used them outside in the playground, but they got grubby quite quickly – so now I’m looking for shoes with a little more substance. I think I’m going to wait until he’s properly walking before I go the whole hog and buy him a pair of leather shoes. That’ll feel like a game-changer – my baby boy’s first pair of grown-up shoes! Incidentally – if we had our time again, I’d buy these amazing rainbow Mocc Onns Moccasin style slipper socks, for cosy winter toes.
