Has anyone had their little ones shoes fitted yet???
My daughter is 10.5 months but she isnt quite walking yet, i dont think it will be too long until she is.Just not sure whether you are meant to wait until they are up and walking about before putting shoes on them?
If anyone has any advice please could you let me know what you think!!

i just started putting soft-sole shoes on my lo. she's cruising, but not quite standing on her own or walking yet. i also got her 2 pairs of squeaky shoes... she LOOOOVES them!! they have little squeakers in the heels, so they make her want to walk so she can hear the sounds....they're so cute!

www.sophieschicboutique.com is where i got them... they have the best prices for the squeaky shoes i've seen anywhere and they have a bunch of them on clearance right now cuz they're getting their spring stock in soon. i just ordered a third pair yesterday :)

Robeez.com .... check it out. Best shoes ever, they stay on and are good for little ones feet.

Yeah i think i will go and get her feet measured as i dont have a clue myself about baby shoe sizes! Then get her used to wearing shoes by the time she is walking!

I had my sons foot measured at Payless he wears a five right now. I buy the Koala Kids brand from BabiesRus right now. He is not walking yet but walks along all the furniture in our house.

My little guy wears shoes so that he can't pull his socks off at day care. He's a big boy (with cankles, too) so I have him in a size 5.5, and they fit him great. My daughter, who was always at the average size started wearing shoes at a year old and I think she started out in a size 4. Kids usually get used to shoes pretty quickly. I really like those little leather slipper-like shoes, but like I said, my son has cankles so they weren't so comfortable for him.

my 9 month old is walking. He has been wearing size 2, but they seem to be getting tight, so I think i'm going to take him to Stride Rite to get him fitted (I'm guessing he's in 3's now).
Before he was walking, i just put him in these little leather moccassins.

I'm not really sure either but I do put shoes on her sometimes just so she gets used to the idea of having them on her, even if it's just for a little while. She eventually kicks them off though...
