If you have a baby, you know how difficult it is to choose baby clothes. One has to pay attention to everything, starting from size to the fabrics. Much less attention is paid to shoes (as long as they fit). However, baby shoes are not created equal either. In this blog, we have collected several tips on how to choose perfect shoes for your baby.
The first rule is to opt for light-weight models. Remember that your baby is just starting to learn to move. He or she will definitely not enjoy having clunky and heavy shoes on.
The second thing to remember is that you should select shoes that are appropriate for your baby’s activities. Babies who do not walk yet and those who do need different shoes. Choosing the right sole is the key thing.
Third, shoes for babies should be flexible enough but stable. Stiff materials will hurt and make your baby feel uncomfortable while too loose models will not hold feet properly.
Another thing that parents often forget about is that shoes should be easy to put on and take off. You do not want to spend hours on dressing and undressing your baby no matter how cute those shoes look.
Remember to check the bottoms of the shoes you are going to purchase. Slippery shoes do not have enough grip and will cause tumbles and falls if your baby does not walk properly yet.
Last but not least, try to opt for shoes that will go with everything. Opt for neutral colors and designs if you do not want to spend money on many pairs to match each set of clothes your baby has.
