FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Jack & Lily Hosts One-for-One Event in Support of BabyGoRound
Children’s Shoe Brand Aim to Help Rebuild Supply of Baby Gear for Non-Profit Organization
April 1, 2020, Vancouver, British Columbia: Jack & Lily, a leading shoe brand for babies, infants and toddlers, announced recently their effort to help support BabyGoRound, a local non-profit organization.
BabyGoRound provides families in need with essential baby items they would otherwise not have access to. Because of COVID-19, many of the families they serve are faced with unprecedented uncertainty and instability. While they are unable to collect used donations at this time due to COVID-19, they have a growing waitlist of families that will be in need of baby gear, clothing and supplies.
As BabyGoRound’s supply has been completely disrupted, they do not have the gear they need to help families. To help rebuild their supply, the Jack & Lily team will be donating 100 pairs of baby shoes to BabyGoRound.
In addition to the 100 pairs, Jack & Lily is hoping to multiply that donation through their “One-for-One” online shopping event from April 7 to April 10. For every pair sold during that time, they will donate an additional pair to BabyGoRound.
“We started Jack & Lily over 15 years ago because of our children. And as parents-first, the well-being and safety of our family is priority and that extends to our community,” says Jack & Lily owner Brenda Buell. “We have been working to find how to best support pandemic relief efforts within our community and one of the ways will include directing our resources to support BabyGoRound and the families that they serve.”

As a mother of three, Jennifer was looking for a place to donate her gently used items so other mothers and children could enjoy the same experience she had when first having children. Unfortunately, there was no such place, and it was then the idea for BabyGoRound was born: a place where Jennifer and a host of other families could pass on gently used items that could really benefit families in our community and give back to those who may need it the most – new mothers with newborn babies and children aged 0-4 years.

Even though March is already here, it’s never too late for you to create new resolutions, especially if it helps the fam bond more. Who says you can only make family resolutions at the start of the year? We rounded up a handful of easy to follow and fun ways to keep your family connected to each other:
- Start a weekly family ritual
Pick a day in a week when every family member can be present. For many families, Saturday nights or Sunday mornings work the best. Schedule a fun, weekly activity like a movie marathon, game night, or any other activity that everyone will enjoy.
- Skip work and school (just once!)
Many families don’t get quality time together during the weekends because those days are packed with events and household chores. So why not take a vacation day from work, dismiss your kid from school and have a family day on a weekday? Make that day memorable for both you and your kids, by letting the kids choose what they want to do.
- Volunteer with your kids
Helping your local community is meaningful and even more so when you do it with your loved ones. This can be a great opportunity for you and your kids to be exposed to causes and understand the value of working together and helping others. Help foster kindness, connectedness, and empathy while giving back.
- Disconnect to connect
Make it a rule in your home to unplug from devices at least once a week. Everyone must participate, including parents. This can be combined with your weekly ritual or a separate day of the week.
- Eat together
Get your kids involved in the kitchen! From something as small as setting the table or even helping cook meals, having them involved teaches them kitchen and food skills and the importance of healthy eating.

Have you noticed your social media feeds busting at the seams with the latest trends for your babies and toddlers? There are tons of brands out there with amazing looks for your little one, but how do you choose? Luckily we know shoes, and we’ve got three helpful tips that you need when looking for the right shoes for infants, babies and toddlers.
The Right Size
Size matters, and is vital for healthy foot development. Just because your child’s feet are one size for one brand, doesn’t mean they are that size for other brands. Children’s feet can vary by as much as a half size. We recommend you visit your local children’s shoe specialty store s and have a professional measure both of your child’s feet. Another option would be to measure using a measuring tape or ruler. Toddlers tend to curl their toes, but this will throw off their measurements. Make sure your child stands while being measured for the shoes! Keep in mind that kids’ feet overgrow, so it is essential to re-measure.
The Right Stuff
What’s the shoe made of? Shoes made with genuine or vegan leather last longer, stretch and mold to the feet and provide extra support and comfort. Well-designed shoes allow for maximum airflow, letting your child’s feet breathe, which minimizes bacteria growth and keeps them healthy. Look for a flexible and rubber sole that will protect your baby or toddler from uneven surfaces, sharp objects, and temperature changes. Shoes made with genuine or vegan leather can be spot-cleaned quickly and air-dried.
The Right Style
This is always the fun part! Pick a style that shows off your child’s personality!

Do you have a hard time looking for a pair of baby shoes? Parents are always looking for the best quality shoes that not only support and protect their children’s feet but are also stylish and unique.
Our feet are considered a foundation of our body, and we must take care of them to prevent leg, foot, and back pain. There are only small selections of soft sole shoes for kids that support and protect healthy growing feet.
Providing your child with a perfect pair of shoes from the time they start learning to walk up to their teenage years will keep the legs and feet healthy. This will also allow them to perform their everyday tasks without legs or feet getting hurt.
There are various benefits of providing soft sole baby shoes to your child. Children are active and always on the go. Soft sole shoes made of high-quality materials like genuine and vegan leather offer extra comfort, protection, and support to the feet.
Here are the features that leather shoes offer to the kids:
Durability and better fit
High-quality shoes last longer. Shoes made with genuine or vegan leather stretch will mold to the feet, providing the child with extra support and comfort.
Well-designed shoes allow for maximum airflow, letting your child’s feet breathe, which minimizes bacteria growth and keeps them healthy.
Easy to maintain and clean
Shoes made with genuine or vegan leather can be spot-cleaned easily and air-dried.
Providing your children with a pair of well-designed baby shoes is a better investment, which will keep your child’s feet feeling healthy and comfortable.
Most children start to walk between 8 to 20 months of age. Sometimes their feet naturally turn inwards because of ligament stiffness and the strength of the muscles is still catching up to their physical development. This tends to improve as the bones in the feet grow and strengthen.
Infants wearing shoes
An infant who is learning to walk receives essential sensory information from the soles of their feet touching the ground. Soft sole baby shoes help protect children’s feet from injury and the cold and heat.
When toddlers learn to walk barefoot or while wearing soft-soled shoes, it helps improve their muscle strength and sensory development. When toddlers start to walk on their own, they can progress to a firmer soled shoe.
Have the shoes of your child fitted professionally, which should include measuring both feet for width and length. Children’s feet overgrow, and it is essential to check the size of the soft sole baby shoes, which might need to be updated every few months. Tight shoes can prevent healthy foot growth and may cause additional issues.
Suggestions while buying children’s shoes
Shoes for the toddler should ideally have:
– A lot of room for the toes
– A comfortable fit in width and length
– The front of the shoe should be wider than the heel to match the natural shape of the foot
– A flat sole – check that the sole can bend near the toe
– A flexible and protective sole – ideally a sole that will protect the toddler from uneven surfaces, sharp objects, and temperature changes
– Straps, laces or fasteners to prevent slipping or movement of the foot in the shoe
– A solid heel counter
– Expensive shoes don’t always prove to be better. Soft sole baby shoes are the perfect ones for infants.
Remember, every child develops differently. If you have any concerns about your child’s foot development, we recommend that you see your family doctor.

The best soft shoes for toddlers are everything about form, fit, and function. Fashion is also a factor and there are various cute kicks out there for toddlers that check off all the boxes. Here’s a guide on how to pick out fashionable and functional toddler shoes:
Don’t order the first pair of shoes online; children’s feet can vary by as much as a half size. Go to a store that specializes in children’s shoes and have a professional measure both of your child’s feet before purchasing the toddler shoes. Keep in mind that kids’ feet overgrow, so it is essential to re-measure.
2. Put a sock in it
When your toddler tries on the shoes, make sure they are wearing the same types of socks that they wear every day. This way, you’ll get a proper fit.
3. Stand for the correct size
Toddlers tend to curl their toes, but this will throw off their measurements. Make sure your child stands while being measured for the shoes. Keep an eye on the toes!
4. If the shoe fits, buy the same size
When buying soft shoes for toddlers, don’t buy a larger size that your kid will grow into while wearing them. Big shoes can be hard to walk in and can also prove to be unsafe. If one foot is more prominent than another, buy to fit the larger one.
5. Check out the heel
Watch a toddler walk in the shoe and look closely at the back of the shoe. If it seems to be loose or slips up and down, the friction could lead to blisters.
It is essential to choose the right sized soft shoes for toddlers. Ensure to select the right one for your little one!

The type of sole makes a lot of difference
Soft, flexible, rubber soles offer more comfort for babies and toddlers and don’t impede the ability to walk. They also let your child grip the floor comfortably while maintaining flexibility, which is closer to walking barefoot while still being protected.
Room for baby’s feet to grow
Soft-soled shoes like baby moccasins are roomier and give the child’s feet more room to grow while still offering a customized fit. As a result, babies and toddlers can wear soft-soled shoes longer without having to replace them as often.
Keep the baby’s feet safe with moccasins
Babies’ feet need protection from changing temperatures, rough and uneven surfaces and objects that may be lying around the house. The soft, thin, flexible sole offers the protection while still being adaptable to the surface they are trotting on, allowing for a better grip. Unlike baby socks with grip or flip flops, well-fitting moccasins for babies stay on their feet much longer.
Baby moccasins have wide openings allowing easy access for babies with all feet sizes and shapes. The comfortable hook and loop closures maintain a secure and custom fit.
