When should babies start wearing shoes?
As most paediatricians will tell you, it’s best to let your baby learn to walk barefoot or in socks, especially at home on carpet and smooth flooring.
But when your baby is ready to head outside and explore outdoor surfaces, a pair of shoes will provide the right amount of warmth, support and protection.
When it’s time to buy your baby’s first shoes, choose a pair that are soft, supple and flexible. This will allow your baby’s feet to flex and move naturally, helping them to walk and run more easily.
