Did your kids walk funny when they started to wear regular shoes?

My Daughter has only worn the Robeez soft soled crib shoes since she was born. Well now she's walking (scratch that, RUNNING) & has a melt down when I put any other shoe on her. I bought soft soled Pedipeds, regular rubber soled sneakers & soft soled shoes from Old Navy. She cries snot & tears & walks around like a cat with booties on in the mud! LOL! Just thought I'd share :) Poor little thing :( what to do?

  • Yep, mine did the funny walk thing too, minus the tantrum. It took them about a week or so to get used to the regular shoes.

  • Dont they all walk/run funny at this age. I find it so hard to take them serious when they look like mario 64 running with a block in his hand
