Your baby's first steps mark an exciting transition for you as a parent. Toddling round the house and moving thing can be a bit overwhelming but seeing the joy on your toddler’s face makes you know it is all worth it. It’s simply a whole new world to explore. It also means your baby is ready for some proper footwear to keep him or her safe from harm.
Here are a few tips that will help you make the best choice when you go shopping for foot wears for your little one.
Poor balance, coordination and bad posture are some of what makes your little one a little one. So, whatever foot wear you’re getting must be able to protect their feet from harm.
Look for shoes that are flexible or not stiff. Anything stiff could impede foot development. Look for materials that are fluffy and light.
Get shoes that fit or are their exact size because oversized shoes will affect the posture of the child’s walking and undersized shoes can affect the muscle development and ligaments in the child's feet.
Change their shoes into more flexible shoes when they start running a lot. This is usually around age four or five; that's about the time a child's arch begins forming.
5. Fast Growth:
According to Dr. DeCaro, a child's feet can grow three-quarters to a full size larger every three to four months. You need to check the fit of your child's shoes quarterly, so they don’t wear tight shoes that can affect them.
6. Easy to Wear:
Choose shoes that will be easy to put on, so you don’t have to force your child’s feet in whenever the shoes is worn.
7. Slippery Sole:
Avoid shoes with slippery sole or weak sole grasp, so your child doesn’t trip and fall.
Choose colours that will blend with your child’s clothes or that can match lots of colours - if you’re going to spend money buying shoes make sure they go with the clothes your baby has.
