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.

Get lace up instead of velcro and double knot them

Yes. My daughter has a couple pairs of converse in size 4. We don't have the shoe or sock issue though. I feel for you though.

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

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

Tights! Get some brown, black and white ones (or whatever "boyish" colors if you worry about that sort of thing) and put them on under his jeans. Problem solved. :)

Have you actually had the fit checked or do you think because there is room for his toes they're ok? They may not be wide enough and are irritating him.

My son wears footed sleepers a lot that at I don't have to find socks and if he takes his shoes off he has the footed part on still. He's 18 months

Also maybe get his feet measured at stride right. Maybe he gas flat free and needs a with

Ugh..I'm terrified of someone calling CPS on me because of it. So many people comment about it and then I show them the 2 pairs of socks and shoes in my purse, put a pair of socks on him and they are gone!

lol. I think 8 is about average for this age. She's tiny all over (just passed up 20lbs), but her feet are even tiny on her.  She was born just under 5lbs, full term.  I'm very petite and after two days of listening to me worry about DD the nurse said "If you are breeding Shetlands you aren't going to get Clydesdales."

She does have tiny feet lol my dd is 27 months old and she is in size 8 wide shoes lol then again she was the only premature baby in the nicu that was in size 1 shoes when she was first born haha


Quoting TheMrs407:

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

I bought dd a pair of slippers in her favorite character. (elmo). It worked and she wears them all the time.  Either that or duct tape..
