It is indeed safe to state that baby shoes are incredibly adorable because there is just something about those tiny little feet wearing a tiny shoe that always makes people go “awwww” when they even just glance at them. It is also very important that you buy shoes that are perfect for your baby. You need shoes that comfort your baby’s feet; it should be soft and just the right size. Tight shoes will inevitably cause the baby a lot of, and when the baby is annoyed, you are the one who has to calm him/her down and make them feel better.
– You should know how to choose the right kind for your baby. If you don’t, there are ways to learn. Use your fingers to feel the inside of the shoes that you’re considering, make sure that it is soft and most importantly, very light. A heavy shoe may be okay for adults, but for babies that are just learning to walk, they will need a pair that will help them walk and not hold them back because if the weight of the shoe.
– Give more than one thought, when it comes to the sole of the shoe. If your baby hasn’t started walking yet, he/she will surely need a different kind of shoe and not the kind that they will use to move around. When a baby crawls, he won’t need shoes at all, but for a baby that has just started walking or still learning to walk (pre-walking stage), they will need a very comfortable and light pair of shoes. The kind of sole you choose should totally depend on the kind of activity the baby is doing.
– The shoes really have to be stretchy and flexible. Tight shoes are a big no-no for babies. Stiffness is not at all welcome. Babies will not walk if their feet are not comfortable. Their toes will have to have enough space to wiggle or move a little bit at least. Pick a pair that works perfectly for the baby. If your baby is old enough to have preferences which they will by the time they are 2, then take them shopping with you and let them decide which they prefer.
– Most importantly pick out shoes that are very easy to put on. Babies are surely impatient little beings. To make your life and your baby’s life easier, go for shoes that are slip-on and slip-off. Make it so that putting the shoe on your baby should be a 5-second task and nothing more. Slide-on and slide-off shoes are the best kinds because they are rarely too heavy, which makes them perfect for the baby.
