  • Why is it important for a baby to wear shoes?

  • I just think that maybe he should at least have some socks on when it's only 30 degrees or below outside! I love him in his barefeet, but I think people wonder why I don't put some socks on him! He is starting to walk now, so I think I should try to get some shoes on him! He's 10 1/2 months old.

  • Its a phase- you wear shoes right? He will too- now dont worry about it.

  • Lol I have no idea. My little girl hasn't figured out how to pull them off with her hands yet, but she rubs her feet together until her shoes and socks come off. I think it's hilarious. But of course it's annoying when she does that in Walmart and she winds up leaving barefoot, because I can't find her socks!

  • First of all, a child that young should not be wearing shoes. Secondly, what is wrong with being barefoot? Unless it is a healthy and safety issue, let the piggie-toes be free (they will smell better, too).

  • I found the easiest thing is get a pair of slip on shoes(this was for my walker....beof rthat I didnt care if she wore shoes) I tak ethem off when we get in e van, when we get to where we are going they shoes go one and we get out and she goes on the ground(walking of course) then when we go back t othe van off they go. Now (she is 2 1/2) she loves to play with her shoes her brother dads or my shoes, off and on al the time.

  • One piece outfits with feet, if they fit in them still.
