Ways to keep socks and shoes on a 17 month old

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Okay,my little man is contantly pulling off his socks and shoes..no matter what the weather if its cold, if its raining..the socks and shoes are off before we even get in the door most the time. He literally throws them off in the store. I tried letting him realize his feet are cold..yeah..it didn't work. Any tips on keeping them on his little feet? I feel terrible letting him go without them, especially in the cold! But its either that  or go chasing socks and shoes across parking lots.

Yep. DD is SUPER petite. She's 2 1/2, but also wears fours and has a pair.

Do they have those in size 4's? He's a tiny baby...

Quoting TheMrs407:

Converse boots, double knotted...it's the only thing that keeps DD in her shoes sometimes

Don't. When mine takes his shoes off, I tell him children in africa don't have shoes, and I take them and put them in my purse.

It's his preference, just go with it.  I was the same way as a baby and I'm the same way as an adult.  The minute I'm in the house my shoes come off.  I only started keeping socks on all the time in the last few years when I started having really cold toesies.

 I realize it's a little boy, but if you are living where it has been so very utterly cold lately, put non-colored tights on him. he will not be able to take those off. as for the shoes, if he's mastered velcro and laces, try a strap as a way for his to not know how to unbuckle it?

Right there in yellow, stop "letting" him go without them, he takes them off and you put them right back on him, he takes them off again you put them right back on again, don't give him the option.

I've seriously considered this....its not usually under 50 around here, even in winter...but its been dropping to the 20s at night. And you can only keep footie pajamas on them for so long.

TIGHTS!! Just get black, brown, or tan ones.
My dd used to have this ritual at night where she'd take her socks off and yell at them before tossing them out of her crib and passing out. We put tights in her instead of socks and she'd pass out trying to get those off.
