  • My don't were shoes until sometime after a year old. If it is cold then I out socks on there feet and make sure the blanket covers there feet. I usually can't find shoes to fit until after a year old.

  • I use to have sometihig on their feet just for ankle security, or in case of stepping on something.

  • My 15 1/2 month old just started wearing shoes. I don't even send shoes to daycare yet. He runs in the grass, on concrete, and in the sand barefooted. I see no reason to force the issue. We're getting him used to shoes slowly, so that he will be comfortable this winter when he has to wear them.

  • my 14 month old has never worn shoes. last winter we got by by putting him in his sleepers, but i know he'll need shoes this time around. I got him sized - he's a 5 1/2 extra wide, which means he has to wear a walking shoe, and he's not walking yet.... :( unsure how we're going to handle it yet....

  • well sandles in the summer..all my kids wear shoes as soon as they can walk when we are out. My kids all walked before 10mos.

  • Yes, my Son always wore either Pedipeds or Robeez & still does in the house (robeez), never barefoot. He wore just socks before he could walk inside but wore Robeez when we went out. (Pedipeds up to 24 mos). Robeez are great summer & winter & prevents him from slipping and tripping. I highly Recommend them, he's wearing them now.
