My 15-month old takes her shoes and socks off every time we get in the car -- even ones I think she won't be able to remove. Any advice on how to keep them on?

Wow Kim...my son does the same thing. I thought his shoes were getn too small and he was uncomfortable, so we bought new ones and he doesnt do it anymore. But, it's weird because he would take off his socks and shoes and it would be as soon as we got in the car...

My daughter does the same thing I've found it a lost cause. You just get more practice at putting them back on.

Why not just let her? If you're in the car its not like her feet are going to freeze off or anything.

My son does the exact same thing. Everytime we get in the car he takes his shoes off. I did put boots on him the other day that tied and I put a double knot in them and he had them on when we got to the school.

What kind of shoes is she wearing? I went out and found my daughter buckle shoes specifically so she won't be able to take them off. She tries, and isn't strong enough to yank them off. I keep them buckled so that she can't figure out how to buckle them, so that she won't then figure out how to unbuckle them. You can try hightops or boots now that it is winter which are also harder to get off (and for you to get on).
