I have a hard time putting shoes on my 8 month old son. He curls his little toes and it makes it difficult to put them on. Well he loves to stand and is learning how to move his legs well i walk with him. He is not crawling yet, he tries to make the attempt but just falls back on his stomach. However i think he will learn how to walk before he crawls and i want him to get use to shoes. How do i get my son to not curl his toes so i can put his shoes on. And is there a certain type of shoe he should be wearing or that is good for support.Answer Question
It's better for his feet if he doesn't wear shoes.

Shoes won't help a baby learn to walk and supportive shoes can actually hinder developing mobility. However, shoes do protect the feet from splinters and other sharp objects. Look for shoes that are lightweight and flexible. As for the curling toes , distracting the baby before you put the shoes on and then kind of sneaking them on might help. But don't worry, babies don't curl up their toes forever, it just takes them a little while to get used to having their feet confined.
