Did/does your child like the feel of grass on their barefeet?

My oldest screamed if you tried to put him on the grass. My daughter could have cared less. And my youngest was like his way no how!

  • our daughter was 10 months old when it was warm enough to take her outside without socks or shoes on. my husband held her under her arms and set her so her lil barefeet touched the grass. she started to cry and picked her legs up so fast! lol, we laughed and laughed, it was so cute! he tried it again but she did not like it. now, six years later, the kid hates to wear socks and shoes!

  • DS didn't mind at all. He thought it was weird at first but he lived in the desert for the beginning of his life so it was all new to him.

  • one of mine was fine with it and the other wasn't...funny b/c the one that couldn't stand it had some other texture type issues and we ended up having to get an occupational therapist for him so he could get past it

  • grass, gravel, pavement, dirt sand, mulch...she doesn't care. Then again I also put her on the grass/ground a lot as soon as she was able to sit up fairly well.
