For the parents, did your baby wear shoes? When did you start having your child wear shoes?
I see all these cute little baby shoes, but my mom said my sister and I would never keep them on our feet. And I really don’t see the point in baby shoes. I’m thinking about skipping the shoes and just having baby wear socks if extra warmth is needed until he is walking in public places.

I think the little crocheted booties are as close as I would go to real shoes, but there’s definitely no need for a sole imo!

We just had the socks that looked like shoes, they’re super cute. I didn’t see any reason for a young baby to be in shoes either. We did keep socks on her a lot even in the summer though because her little feet would turn blueish even on a warm day without them as a newborn.
We did start putting shoes on her more around 6 months because her feisty fingers started yanking her socks off and it was cold and winter and because she wanted to practice walking all the time so if we went outside she had shoes on.

I don’t think babies (not walking) should wear shoes at all. But when they do start walking I think barefoot is best around the house and when outside a shoe is fine, just not for too long. I know there is controversy over when a baby should start wearing them. Some say as soon as they start walking and others say somewhere around 15 months.

No shoes here!
They seroiusly are a pain to keep up with b/c it lmost never fails that baby will kick ONE… just one… off & then you don’t realize where or when exactly it happened! lol
I don’t remember when I started putting DS in shoes, so I guess we’ll just have to see how it goes with this lo. It’ll probably be around the same time as @troubled stated just b/c of it getting cold and such.

Shoes are just a fashion accessory until they are walking outside. Then their darling little feet need some protection. The challenge with socks is keeping them on. Robeez give their feet some warmth and actually stay on their feet.

i don’t have a child, but I’m planning on just putting socks on my baby’s feet until they start walking. I don’t really see the point in them accept that they look cute:)

Ds started wearing shoes as soon as he would fit into them. It was the best thing we did, he is now 19 months old andnever kicks up a fight to put his shoes on and never takes them off. Il ask him in themorning to go get your shoes and he will get then for you and say shoes on. It’s so cute! He just knows that you wear shoes when you go out. A lot of kids at his daycare don’twear shoes and are always taking them off though.

In a baby care class we were told they recommend shoes about 2 months after the baby starts walking, until then just socks.

We didn’t use shoes regularly until Dirty Delete was about a year, or a few months after she started walking. Our doctor said it’s better for their development to be barefoot until they have a real handle on walking. Plus baby shoes are such a pain to keep track of!

I skipped shoes until he was able to walk. I didn’t see the point to spend money on something he didn’t need
