  • Our doctor and my daughter PT & OT say no shoes for babies. The only time they need shoes is when they are going somewhere that they might actually get hurt without them, like a playground with bark for ground cover.

  • Get the soft leather slip on ones like the Robeez

    From Why Your Baby Should Wear Soft Soled Shoes "It is extremely important that your baby wear soft soled shoes if you choose to put them on him or her at all. Pediatricians now recommend baby's under two years of age do not wear rigid and restrictive shoes. Barefoot is actually best and is optimal for proper foot and muscular development. You may be tempted to abide by the rules our parents used, in that more support for a developing foot the better. But don't get caught up in that old way of thinking! Foot specialists will agree! It's not true at all, that more support is better, and that line of thinking can actually cause damage your baby's foot!"
